    • Synopsis
    • Celebrity hairdresser Barbs Marshall might seem to have it all: a successful business, her own TV show, a fabulous loft apartment in a trendy part of Glasgow, designer clothes, lots of good friends and an ever-loving mother with a housework fixation. However, as Barbs reaches her 40th birthday, all of a sudden here comes the deafening tick of her biological clock. Barbs wants a baby and it has to be now or never. Barbs is longing for a young life, even though she finds her own mother hard to get close to. The trouble is, she needs a man... but her ex-husband has a new girlfriend and her best friend is gay. Then she meets a 26-year-old stranger who seems more than ready to oblige…
      The film follows in the lines of trashy genres, but at the same time it plays with them and by stressing "gender themes" it even enters the poetics and ideology of feminism.
      Perfect days is a charming comedy with utterly contemporary, and rather adult content, addressing the issues of parenthood, homosexuality, generation gaps. There is a compassion, and an anger, and a humour, at the heart of every human relationship. Film is about spontaneity and understanding, revealing in the end that the ultimate way for our happiness is not in games we play, but our close intimate relationships with others.
