Dull Comedy in variable colour
1 May 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is quite clear that the producers set out to imitate the Ealing comedies.Each character has his or her own eccentricities and is played by one of that reliable band of character actors.Alas even they are unable to breathe life into a moribund script.On the one hand there is Peter Finch trying hopelessly to find the right way to play his character.then on the other hand there is Adrienne Corri who is doing her best at elfin charm but failing miserably.The Eastman colour is quite strange.Early in the film the actors are washed out and then they turn a shade of orange.In the scene where we first see Adrienne Corrie the scenery seems more blue than green.All in all a truly forgettable film.
