I watched like half of this movie when I was a like 8 or 9, I was home alone and I did not understand much of it but I liked it. Then my dad came home and I knew I was gonna be in trouble if he found out I was watching it so I knew I that I needed to remember the name of the movie so I could watch the rest of it on another day. I am 19 now and finally I found it again, it has been so long, I have been thinking that the name of the movie have been Summerloving for so long…

I think I skipped by this one because of the title. When I saw that Paddy Considine was in it and the good reviews I had to watch it. If you haven’t seen this don’t skip it. It is a fantastic film. Fuck yeah – 5 stars. The theme song “Lovely Head” by Goldfrapp is hauntingly beautiful. The discussion in the film about Edith Piaf is (probably purposely) inaccurate, which led me to discover a film called “La Vie en rose” (2007) a biography about Piaf. Marion Cotillard, who portrays Piaf in the film, won an Academy Award for Best Actress. Sounds serious so I’m going to have to find it and watch it.
