Sorry he's gone.
So am I. He's sloppy and irritating but he's got a good heart, you can forgive someone almost anything for that.
I love you.
Perhaps you do, perhaps it means something to have your General lie back in your arms though he's heartily sick of the whole campaign. Tired, hungry and dry.

Oh, what a depressing movie! A product of the Angry Young Man school of filmmaking in Britain, it is Burton who unleashes his wrath in this one. He's college-educated but works as a street vendor. Yes, that would make one bitter but does not really explain his anger with the whole world and his mistreatment of his wife. It would be an understatement to say that Burton is bombastic; he chews the scenery to bits. Faring better are Ure as his wife and Raymond as his friend and business partner. Bloom is lovely as Ure's friend, someone who inexplicably is attracted to Burton the brute. Richardson's directorial debut is disappointing.
