Good film, outstanding music

There is something which, for me, is more compelling about films set in Europe which are made by filmmakers in their home areas. Even if Spielberg, Allen, Mamet or the like, from America, with all their talent and resources, make films in Great Britain, France, Spain, etc. - they never seem to gain the true "feel" of the locale as well as native producers and directors. As an example, absolutely nobody can evoke the true character and feel of Madrid and the rest of Spain like the great Amodóvar. Although this small film is hardly in the category of one of Amodóvar's, it provides a true "feel" for Scotland and Glasgow, including its often gray, dreary atmosphere, in the most authentic manner, making the amusing, light story even better. The music is great, the acting and characters engaging, and somehow the characters seem both realistic and fanciful, sometimes simultaneously, a trick many larger films miss. As a bonus, we also can now see where Mike Myers likely obtained the accent he employed for the "Fat Bastard" character in his Austin Powers work.

Great Music, Great Cast, Great Movie...

I attended the Premier of Strictly Sinatra on Sunday Night. I was extreemly impressed by this movie. It had a great cast including the fantastic Ian Hart as Tony Cocozza. Brian Cox also put in a fantastic performance. The Movie is set in Glasgow and revolves around the life of Tony Cocozza and his dream to rise to Sinatra like stardom. Tony sings in pubs doing his act which is 'Strictly Sinatra' until one night one of Glasgow's gangland bosses request a song which is not in Tony's regular act. After performing an Elvis classic the young man is invited to join the man and his associates to a night in a casino. IT's here he meets a pretty cigarette seller, played by Kelly McDonald. Tony soon gets caught up in the local mob, after accidently asking for a favour, one which he'd have to return. His friends find out and he has to make a descision....fame, at it's price, or the girl of his dreams. Ian Hart stands out in the brilliant cast with his fantastic vocals for the movie. If it had been made in America he'd be nominated for an oscar, sadly this Scottish movie will probably be ignored.

give it a break!

As a lifetime Sinatra fanatic, I was drawn to this movie with interest and little knowledge of the plot. I thought the film was a fairly well told story of a "star struck" wannabe with a gentle heart, who decides he willing to do anything to realize his aspirations, and follow in Ol Blue Eyes footsteps. The musical score is excellent and lends to the period of work that Cocozza's idol gave to the world. Ian Hart does his best to detail what a 28 yr old "loser" feels like, and the depths he will sink to "make it".The one drawback was the often difficulty in understanding the Scottish dialect that too often impairs the ability to discern key dialogue exchanges. All in all, I'd recommend it..especially to the millions of Sinatra fans still around who continue to perceive his talent/persona in a "god-like" fashion.
