Ae Fond Kiss
Director Ken Loach and writer Paul Laverty team up again for the third part of his ”Glasgow Trilogy” (after “My Name Is Joe” and “Sweet Sixteen”). It’s a story of love across the ethnic divide. A young Catholic teacher falls in love with a second-generation Scottish-Pakistani. The hitch is that he is due to marry his cousin in nine weeks’ time and his parents, devout Muslims, are appalled that he has chosen to live with a “goree”, a white girl. Ae Fond Kiss is about assimilation, racism, arranged marriages, bridging across cultural divides and the problems of immigrant families.
(UK, 104 minutes, 2004, 35 mm)
