This Is Not a Love Song

During a botched attempt to steal gasoline a small-time thief inadvertently shoots a young girl, and he and his partner are pursued across the Scottish Highlands and moors by an armed posse. The story—written by Simon Beaufoy, who also scripted The Full Monty—is a variation on Of Mice and Men, with Kenny Glenaan playing mentor to a brash but dim-witted dependent (Michael Colgan). Despite some amateurishly arty digital-video effects, director Bille Eltringham makes nice use of the foreboding terrain to cast a pall around the men. Not a groundbreaker, but an effective low-key suspense yarn. 94 min.
