Like butter melting on your heart.
- Sunshine on Leith review by KG
Fantastic musical film.
Proclaimers songs are legendary and the film is blended into them as if they were written specifically for this film, not 20 years earlier.
The story leads us through a few years in the life of Davy and Ally after their return from Afghan.
The songs tell the story,
Returning to Edinburgh - 'I'm on my Way'
A drunken night moving on from the past - 'It's over and done with'
Life changes - 'Letter from America'
Love Blossoms - 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)'
Proclaimers music is fantastic, and the whole film is an emotional, inspiring joy.
If more than 5 stars were available, this would get it.

Leith Miserables: Health Warning
- Sunshine on Leith review by Alphaville
Be warned: this film is built around 13 (yes, thirteen) excruciating Proclaimers’ ditties and could induce fatal irritation. Apologies to all behind and in front of the camera but it’s all about the muzak and, boy, don’t those Proclaimers proclaim. Unless your musical tastes are so atrophied that you’re willing to submit your ears to painful mind-numbing singalong pub karaoke, you are advised to give it a very wide berth. Watch with care and keep your finger hovering over the fast-forward button in case of emergency.
