Frank (Mullan) a Glasgow shipyard worker finds himself without a job when the yard's sold off to foreign investors. Denied his livelihood, Frank decides to swim to France to prove something to himself. Not quite the broad comedy of 'The Full Monty' and not as feelgood as 'Billy Elliot', 'On a Clear Day' is a more sombre film. But like those efforts it benefits from its concrete setting and vivid characters, and from its criticism of the sorry state of the nation that's inherent to the story rather than being shoved down our throats.
