Visually Attractive - But Little More To Offer
A production that offers a (very) modest plot but is visually enjoyable, this TV film/mini-series is ultimately unsatisfying.

Those who wish to gain a sense of the sights and sounds of England in the 1950's will enjoy the sets, fashions, cars and cinematography - as will those who were there and wish to reminisce. However, the storyline and characterisations are in reality more representative of the time in which the film was made than the period in which it is set. The sexual mores, in particular, are anomalous. (Much the same can be said of the novel on which this production is based.)

I can't really recommend this film unless you gain particular enjoyment from pretty scenery and the visual portrayal of another age. The storyline is extremely slender - and ultimately uninteresting - whilst the characters are paper-thin (unintentional) parodies.

Still, the sets and scenery are very attractive (as is the female lead). So if you just want to relax and let it wash over you, and don't mind the tediuus and unexciting sexual content, you could give it a try on a lazy evening.

I wouldn't bother, though...
