'Kiss' Bliss

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Veteran UK director Ken Loach (Kes, My Name Is Joe, Sweet Sixteen) delivers another of his beautifully observed portraits of working-class people in social and political turmoil. In Ae Fond Kiss, blonde schoolteacher (Eva Birthistle) falls for a Pakistani hipster (Atta Yaqub), disrupting his family dynamic and his upcoming arranged marriage. Viewed at the the 23rd annual San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. In America the title was changed to A Fond Kiss.
