Local hero is my favorite movie.

Doug K

I read the novel when it came out, was not going to see the movie but now you've persuaded me..
The novel also has that sadness at its heart, I remember it as a tragedy in the end. Or as you have observed in other contexts, it's a tragicomedy, just like life: but now glossed into a movie where the sadness almost disappears behind the sheen.

Doug K, just a head's up: the movie's made some significant changes from the book.

oh, and a good interview with the author, here.

Nice to see a mention of Local Hero as an early monument in this genre -- it's a fave I can watch anytime, for old times' sake. Hope I can find SFIY somewhere.
