definitely recommended for the kleenex brigade!
2 October 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

this is a heartfelt drama about this bloke who beds aload of birds while working as a teacher. theres alot of tasty crumpet in abundance along with loads of sex scenes. if you forget about all the arty stuff you should find all the dirty bits enjoyable!
