Ae Fond Kiss

For anyone who hankers for some measure of real life in their cinema without having to suffer the excesses of cinema verite, Ken Loach is a godsend. From long experience he has developed a seemingly effortless ability to unify a commitment to naturalistic story-telling with the artifices of narrative cinema. His choice of subject matter and settings, his thoughtfully-developed scripts and his use of non-professional actors yield a rewarding outcome, teasing out the drama in the everyday, transforming the mundane without ever over-embellishing it.
