This is a film that is hard to find, but when yo find it, it's worth it. It moves briskly for a drama, and has lots of charm.
It is the story of big business against the little people, in this case the little people being a Welsh village.
But the big business isn't portrayed so one dimensionally, either. In fact, only one heartless man is responsible for the turmoil caused, and indeed the British lord in charge is much more sensible and human. However, the heartless man is in the role of agent, and once lived in the village before being discovered as a thief.
Two elements that magnetize a viewer to this piece are Irony and Atmosphere. This film is high on both, and I love Irony and Atmosphere.
