Two youngsters declare to their parents that they want to get married. Not sometime in the future but as soon as possible. The story is told from the children’s point of view.
I recently unearthed a school art project of a LP album cover I had made at the tender age of 16. It was a cover made for the soundtrack to the film ‘Melody (S.W.A.L.K.)’. This prompted an internet search for a copy of the album. I was overjoyed to find one and paid a fortune to get it. The original was given to my girlfriend at the time and cost only a couple of pounds. When I first saw the film that prompted the original purchase, I was 16. I was in love. And I had turned my every waking moment to my girlfriend. In short, this film mirrored my life at the time. Listening to the tracks has recaptured ‘Love’s Young Dream’ and I would love to be able to get a VHS copy. I don’t think I would be disappointed to see it again as this film is timeless.
