Obvious plot, fantastic music sequence
13 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather obvious and predictable plot made acceptable by the use of top notch players (Griffith Jones, Kathleen Byron, Hugh Williams, etc.), all of who appear to dispatch their respective parts with complete credibility.

However, what got me to return to this film a few times was the fantastically wonderful music sequence, utilized both during the dance scenes and as emotional ballast for some of the more poignant moments. As a musician myself, I found that I had to hear this repeatedly to absorb it for myself.

I certainly recommend the film for the musical score, but as well for the performances by the players, which pulls through the plot and more than saves it from being hackneyed.
