a gem
24 September 2004 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

I pretty much agree with the comments made by the first reviewer here.

I watched this movie mainly because I'm a Janet Munro fan (this was her first movie). It was clear from the first few minutes, however, that being a Munro fan was not the sole reason for watching, as it's a well-observed, well thought-out little gem, filled with fun and completely unpretentious.

As to Miss Munro, she did not disappoint, more than holding her own with seasoned actors such as Gordon Harker and Marie Lohr, themselves absolutely delightful in their roles.

This one should be made more widely available in the U.S.

No need to read this last line; I'm just adding it, since IMDb now insists that our reviews contain at least ten lines. Sheesh.
