One of my favourites
11 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my favourites because it contains a glimpse of the Royal Air Force at the time I had my first flight as a schoolboy in a Meteor Mark VII (which was the RAF's first jet trainer) and which appears in the film.

The film also displays the Norfolk Broads where I grew up and, apart from some rather dodgy Norfolk accents, show something of its splendid scenery.

It is also a good story, well told and, apart from 'Perdita' - a seagull, with British actors and actresses who are well-chosen and know how to assume the characters they portray.

It is a great pity that no copy is yet available on DVD.
