Set in a world far removed from the claustrophobic war-time trenches setting of R.C. Sherriff's greatest success, "Journey's End", this agreeable trifle rates as a quietly charming little comedy of manners. Lovers of action and excitement are warned that the climax of the film revolves around the annual cricket match between the English villages of Badger's Green and Roxholt. The only action in the film occurs off-screen. However, all the acting throughout rates never less than very capable, production credits are smooth, and the direction hits the mark of realistic competence.
