This is the Trailer.


Found this on our ‘Acorn TV‘ channel (on the Roku 3) yesterday. Looked promising and it had the potential of being another ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Well, it isn’t as funny — but I don’t think it ever tried to be that funny. The beauty of this movie is the dry wit; understated British humor, with a lot of subtle ‘nudge, nudge‘, ‘wink, wink‘. If you are into British humor you will know, at once, what I am talking about. It is an amusing yarn, slightly predictable — but that is part of the charm.

It is set mainly in Bristol. That was nostalgic for I. I have spent a LOT of time in Bristol in the 1970s. Kind of a second home. This film has one of the most exquisite images of the Clifton Suspension Bridge I have ever seen. I had to rewind it and watch it again, it was that exquisite.

If you like British humor you should watch this. Available on YouTube. Enjoy.

The Full Movie, for FREE, on YouTube!


Found it on Amazon Prime for free. It was British, had Judi Dench and looked interesting. Did I already mention that it was also FREE.

That Maggie Smith, who we identify as being from “Downton Abbey” was a bonus.

It was very watchable, quaint and nicely captured the 1940 feel. Some superb pictures of the Cornwall coast. The violin music was impressive,

Improbable story! Could not have happened. Just ahead of WWII and he is a German-speaking Pole. But, an easy enough yarn to relax through. Not taxing. Just mellow.

If you are into quaint, 1940s British dramas — this is for you. Plus, two GREAT ladies. You can’t go wrong. Read about the movie and the two ladies on IMDb.com. Interesting. They are nearly twins.
