A classic film.

It's many years since I last saw this. Watching it agian, it still holds up as being a hugely enjoyable film. The politics of the storyline are an absolute cliche, but the performances are so good, from a cast of some of Britains best comedy actors, that you can forget some of the cringingly simplistic plot assumptions.

The performance that really stands out, way above the others, is Peter Sellars as the rather pathetic shop steward. He manages to give a finely balanced portrayal, that is both very funny, but also quite subtle, allowing room to show us the sadness of this character. It is, for me, Sellars' best screen performance.

A classic film.
