Storyline

It concerns a pacifist husband who is so involved in his "causes" he totally neglects his wife and two sons. The wife, ready to leave her husband, finds the schoolmaster knocking on their door informing them their boys are going to be expelled for fighting, which he finds ironic in as much as the father is a known pacifist. When they get to the school their sons have disappeared. Written by Tapestry6

Delightful
6 September 2003 | by (hingham, mass., usa) – See all my reviews

The action in this charming (yes) Cold War comedy centers around the brilliant, extraordinary son of Mills - a son who is never seen, but who has become a school hero, then a national, and finally, an international hero! At turns moving and hilarious, this film is how a highly civilised people react to the dread of atomic war - I refer to the writers. The enemy is hardly the West, of course, but amongst the freest of humanity, complacency and lassitude reign. But in this wonderful tale, one boy ignites (almost literally - you will know what I mean) the minds of young Britons.
