Cuilionn BS: Scotland - I know Where I'm Goin' (53* d) RE: BS: Scotland - I know Where I'm Goin' 09 Jul 04


Onyane whae can get access tae the DVD (issued as pairt o the "Criterion Collection", Ah believe) micht enjoy watchin this maevie aince mair, wi aa the extra features. There's a hale wee documentary on the makin o the film--quite fascinatin stuff, in the verra airly days o "special effects." Ah appreciatit the actors muckle mair, tae, when Ah lairnit whit they aa went thro tae create the film.

Ah fairst saw this film--a raither bedragglit videotaped copy--durin a Scottish Gaelic language class, an oor job wis tae listen claise tae aa the Gaelic dialogue bits an try tae kythe & translate 'em. We haed sae muckle fun!

There's a local DVD rental plaice that haes a copy o this film. Ah've rentit it tae watch wi friends at least hauf a dozen times, an it disnae lose its appeal. Noo, if Ah can jist get 'em tae acquire a copy o "Whisky Galore" (said tae be the anely "all-Gaelic" film title for an English-language film), then Ah can stairt arrangin some double-features!
