A lovely romance from the period when people actually believed that a choice in marriage was permanent and of the highest meaning. Our young heroine is set up to be the crass young urban modern who needs to take a fall for her own good, but manages to remain appealing nonetheless. The rich older man she is traveling to marry never has a chance against the poorer but more authentic aristocrat who shows her a stirring kind of traditional life. I'm not qualified to distinguish a real Scottish accent from a fake one, or real Gaelic from English actors' attempts, but I loved the way the local characters frequently lapsed into their ancient language. If the laird of Killoren had spoken to me in Gaelic, it wouldn't have taken me long to give up my dreams of a Beverly Hills existence in favor of the ruined castle, falconry, and honorable Naval service.

This classic holds up in every way

Film buffs have undoubtedly heard about the Powell-Pressberger classic I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING! Well, take it from someone who has finally experienced this movie, "hearing about" doesn't begin to do it justice. Some "classics" have a musty whiff about them: not this one. Some "classics" don't hold up to their inflated reputations. This one sure does. Though a small film in many ways, it perfectly achieves its goals--while providing so many wonderful performances, particularly those of the two leads. The Criterion dvd release is quality all the way. And if you enjoy the movie, you MUST watch "I Know Where I'm Going Revisited," which is included on the dvd. (I'm upping my rating from nine notches to ten, due to this entire dvd compilation.) The 30-minute documentary offers interviews with an assortment of fascinating people--famous and not--and will have you bowled over in surprise and admiration for the vision and ingenuity of this unique pair of writers, producers and directors. Powell and Pressburger are surely among the greatest "collaborators" in the history of art.

Charming romantic comedy about a young woman traveling to the western islands of Scotland to marry a rich industrialist. A gale prevents her from meeting her fiancÚ on one of the islands, so she is forced to spend time with the locals. A castle with a curse and a wish that comes true (too well) add the slightest touch of the fantastic to the proceedings. Watch for a cameo appearance by a young Petula Clarke.
