Forever And A Wonderful Day is True Movie Making ****
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This grand 1943 film once again proved that the British were at their best when they kept that stiff upper lip.

This magnificent piece tells the story of a house from its inception in England in 1804 until the German blitzkrieg circa 1940.

Nothing was spared in this provocative film regarding the cast. Practically everyone known in British films is in it and they all shine.

As two people are dickering in selling the house, its rich history is brought back in a series of flashbacks. We go back to the Napoleonic Era and trace the house to Queen Victoria's era, World War 1 and eventually the second world war.

The film provides plenty of heartbreak and sadness but is a definite testament of faith to the British people in the tradition of Mrs. Miniver.
