Great sleeper
28 October 2001 | by (melbourne, australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the top films of the late seventies. It is a real sleeper, as not many people will have had the opportunity to witness its charms in an actual cinema. I believe it shows great insight into character and the human condition. John Waters gives a finely restrained performance and the balance of tragedy to comedy is deftly worked. A terrific piece along the possible lines of Whistle Down the Wind - Bryan Forbes film starring Alan Bates. Well worth the effort. Enjoy your cinema. Andy
