Perfect Fluff, Only Smarter.

As anyone who has met me will know, I am a soppy sod. While others get their rocks off on thrillers, horror and martial arts films, I'm never happier than when sat in front of a good romantic comedy.

So I was rather despairing that the wonderful film that saved me from the drudgery of the world cup, and which Vicky and I watched completely on our own in the Greenwich Filmworks on the night of an England game, looked like it was never going to make it out on DVD.

But yesterday, as I walked through Virgin, failing to buy Catherine Tate DVDs for work, I saw Imagine Me And You peering back at me.

I really can't recommend it highly enough. And I've not yet seen a review that manages to talk about the gay aspect of it with anything approaching the subtlety and deftness of the story itself. It's just such a beautifully crafted and balanced film, with brilliantly judged performances from all, so it never feels prurient or sensationalist - it's just a film about two people who fall in love but feel they can't be together. And as an audience member you're just willing them along - never expecting how well the film will handle the fallout from it.

If you have just a glimmer of fluffiness in your soul, do give this one a go.
