“Radical Brit filmmaker Ken Loach uses a cross-cultural love story to take a hard look at the New World Order in Central America in Carla’s Song, set between working-class Glasgow and war-torn Nicaragua…burns with enough spirit to keep critical interest keen and the director’s following loyal.” —Variety
“Sharp and funny, tender and real…rings very true.”
—Time Out London
“Demonstrates a keen sense of location. Both in Glasgow and in Nicaragua, a vivid texture of daily life is presented.”
Director Ken Loach brings us Carla’s Song (1996), a politically inclined romance about a Glaswegian bus driver (Robert Carlyle) who meets and falls in love with a Nicaraguan refugee (Oyanka Cabezas). Moved by her plight, he travels with her to a conflict-torn Nicaragua, searching for her former lover, who has disappeared in the chaos of that country’s savage civil war. Cinematography by Barry Ackroyd and musical score by George Fenton, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
