On A Clear Day

On A Clear Day

On A Clear Day
Another Brit, working class under-dog story (see Kinky Boots). Again it's standard fare but with a big old British heart that have some critics claiming it to be the next 'Billy Elliot'.

Made redundant after years in a shipyard & still grieving over the drowning of his son decades ago, Glaswegian granddad Frank (Mullan) devises a dubious plan to restore his pride: he'll swim the English Channel.

An absolute gem.

This film is an absolute gem. Superbly acted, very funny but also very poignant. On leaving the cinema I commented to my daughter that I can't see how anyone wouldn't like this film.

What can I say apart from that it was brilliant and much much better than I expected it to be. Plus Billy Boyd is hilarious. He relaxes the atmosphere with the comic relief and to see him in those pink pants...PHWOAR!

On a Clear Day is a very well made movie that will please your olds more than you. Good performances by everyone involved but at the end of the day this movie isnt as uplifting as some other british feel-good "man i've come a long way since the opening credits!" flicks. But then again, I think the story isnt.

Thanks in large part to a terrific central performance from Mullan, it packs an emotional punch out of all proportion to its slight premise...

Most mainstream movies paddle in the shallows, but this has a heart big enough to swim the Atlantic. An inspiring, uplifting tale that deserves to be British cinema's latest success story...

Its impact is such that you may find yourself soaked in some salt water of your own...
