A very witty English comedy with a brilliant cast. It has a twist at the end but this comment does not reveal the end. I have enjoyed it for years whenever it is shown on TV. The cinematography is well composed and the scenery looks genuine. The dialog is clever as well as witty. The cast is well chosen and adequate for their roles in this movie. The characters are well depicted also. There is some subtle humor in the dialog too. The costumes are also appropriate for the period in which this movie is set. All in all, I would highly recommend this movie to viewers of all age groups, young and old.
I would like to buy it if it is available on VHS or DVD.
