Carla's Song

  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Written by: Paul Laverty
  • Cast: Robert Carlyle

Carlyle plays Glaswegian bus driver George, who gives up everything to help refugee Carla return to Nicaragua and find her boyfriend. The love story aspect of the first (Scottish) half of the film is its strongest point; the revelations in central America don't hold surprises nor does the director seem totally at home with the 'action' elements. Carlyle, however, is excellent – mildly tough and totally charming.
