| The most aggressive passive aggression ever filmed.
A unique and infuriating trip to the masochistic social 'niceties' of the 1950s.

All the players play out their theatrical roles well, but Penelope Keith is extraordinary.

A noisy, over-educated harridan who forces her will to get her way disrupts the lives of residents at a Devonshir guest house. Her impact on the stuffy souls around her are a huge source of insight into the human condition of a post war England.

It was written as a play and has been deliberately filmed as if in a theatrical setting. Still great to watch even after almost four decades.
