A heartwarming Carry On esque film
18 August 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is a lovely film, that always makes me feel all happy and warm inside by the end. It is a very gentle comedy starring some familiar stars from the Carry On dynasty. There is nothing too threatening involved and the characters are all very easy to warm to.

The location in a TB sanitorium does add depth to the film which takes it just that touch above a regular carry on film. The title refers to the touching idea that when you start to get better you can venture forth in the open air more. And the sign that you are almost well again is when you are allowed to walk round the daffodils twice.

When watching this film, it is important to just go with it and enjoy it for what it is - a true classic!
