| A visual feast
"COrnflakes for Tea" is a banquet for the senses, a luxurious feast that brings the glory of cinema to the televisual screen. Don't be fooled by it's low budget and unknown cast; oh no, this film is a satisfying meal in itself. It has everything a 2006 audience could ask for, twenty-five years ahead of its time. Action, drama, pathos, special effects, and comedy, all rolled into one visually-spectacular smörgåsbord. An a la carte meal on a plate, with superior and attentive table service. This film is like a fine wine; it only improves with time. Visually, the film is a throw-back to the cinematic conventions of the early eighties. Viewers will enjoy the retroesque atmosphere of the film, in combination with it's subtleties of characterization and plot development. To be recommended as unmissable viewing for all ages.
