Genteel, shapeless comedy almost redeemed by the music of Nino Rota.
16 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to care about the problems faced by this genteel upper middle class family. Drippy hubby (Anthony Steel) searches for a job immediately post WW2, while Patricia Roc (who acts well) minds the baby. However, Nino Rota's beautifully soppy music almost makes up for the uneventful plot and dull marital conflicts.
