 >A Fond Kiss

Shouldn't this be "Ae Fond Kiss"?

It's a Scots locution, I think Burns, but it rings different in English
and Scots.

Ken Loach is English, so "A Fond Kiss" there is simply "[Indefinite
Article] Fond Kiss".

     In Scots, it has a heavier punch -- "*ONE* Fond Kiss".

             Just a thot.

(Oh incidentally, and this is prolly only of interest to Richard Burt,
but a set of novels by Christopher Brookmyre star, in alia, a Glagow
Pakistani girl who's educated in a Glasgow girls' Catholic grammar
school, and supports Rangers.

         She joins the police ...

If you're into cross-cultural linguistic references between noir
detective and Edinburgh/Glasgow slang, with a trace of a link between
Dada and Situationist bank-robberies, Brookmyre can be screamingly funny.

                     He knows whereoff he speaks ...

         Dunno if there's a connection to Shakespeare, but ...

The original title is Ae Fond Kiss.  I hope the distributors didn't feel
it necessary to Americanize the dialect, since they lose the Burns
allusion in the process.
