'Odd couple' relationship, funny and touching
29 November 2000 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

In 'Swinging Sixties' London a young woman tries to find herself by indulging in affairs which inevitably end in disaster - and childbirth. After several failed relationships, each of which adds to the population, she realises that there is one man who has always stood by her and loved her through thick and thin - her father's old manservant Savage (Harry Andrews).

It's a great 'odd couple' relationship and a real change of pace for Andrews who for once is not required to play the square-jawed hero. It's a funny and touching movie, now rather dated, but it stands up nicely as an artifact of its time; all those sophisticated settings and exotic foreign locations are eventually seen as empty and irrelevant when set against the values of home and The Love Of A Good Man.

If only real life was that simple!
