| I Say, Chaps---I Think It's Rather Brilliant
Different strokes for different folks, I guess! I saw this movie one night on Turner Classics, and thought I'd check out the IMDb write-up. I was surprised to see the negative comments about it, so I have to respond. I couldn't disagree more! It's definitely from another era, the British theatrical tradition of the '30s and '40s when Noel Coward was at his peak. I thought the writing and characterization was totally brilliant in all respects. Three short plays with unique, eccentric British characters involved in totally different slices of life. It's off-the-wall, satirical, cheeky black humor that's always ironic and engaging. All the actors are excellent, and obviously highly experienced veterans of the English stage. Consequently, this is definitely not a Hollywood production, and a lot of people might not appreciate it. But for anyone who appreciates the world of Noel Coward, I think it deserves top ratings.
