I've got to dance with her.
You're mad! What do you want to do that for? She'll only say "Buzz off." She's like that. This whole girl-nonsense is rubbish. Girls are a bunch of snot-nosed little so-and-so's.

I saw this film when I was eleven. That was 27 years ago, and I still love it. That's unique because I haven't seen it for 27 years. It was not long after my sister's wedding. I remember this because I went to see it at half term, and I went to see it 5 times that week. I couldn't afford popcorn that many times, so I took a piece of my sisters left-over wedding cake with me each day. It is a gentle story of young love, which ends happily. Simple. What made it so good for me was the way I could identify with the two young lovers (or wanted to). I had a crush on a girl, and this film portrayed for me the fairy tale I wanted to live. And it has a score by the Bee Gees. I still sing "In the morning" (I think that's what the song was called) to myself, a song worth seeing the film just to hear. I've never seen this film on video or TV, and I don't want to. It's one of those films that I know if I see it again, I'll probably be disappointed. To paraphrase Stephen King: I've never seen films like this since, but when you're eleven, who has?
