Storyline

Dick and Mandy, a young working class couple, move into a council house in Canterbury, and find Mr. Butcher, one of their former teachers, living next door. Mandy's unmarried sister, Gloria, is constantly dropping in, and will not take any hints that the couple would prefer to be left alone, until her presence finally goads them to action.

why no video?
6 April 2001 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

I have only seen this once when it first came out 20 years ago,but i still remember it as if it were yesterday,i thought it was wonderful,and i have watched everything Mike Leigh has done ever since,but this is the only one that hasn't been repeated,and for some Unknown reason it is not available on video in the U.K. I would love to see this again,and would like to know why it is only avaiable in the states,as it is a truly British masterpiece.
