Considering I hate the sound of bagpipes this film and I really got off on the wrong foot. Seriously played story of aspiring weilders of the Scottish staple instrument. Unfortunately our weekday worker can't became a weekend warrior due to lack of funds for extracting sound from the instrument of his dreams.
I was thinking hooray! As it meant I didn't have to sit through the sound again. I respect what the team was trying to do and please don't let you think that the prejudice is the only reason I didn't really dig the film. It was also quite static/dialogue based, and the somber tone lacked a payoff or resolution.
A piper who can't afford to purchase bagpipes is unable to compete (?) in a fictional piping competition Friday Night Lights. Said Piper is taken by his friend to a piping hall where he's advised he's had his entrance fee paid for. Cue a couple of scenes on a hill and deathbed.
Some sound and lighting issues the main root causes in this one and perhaps an explanation as to why the supporting character goes from healthy piper to deathbed would have supported the pay off.
Apart from that some great scenes to begin and end the film, the middle was just a bit muddly.
