A forgotten gem
28 June 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This drama lingers for some reason I can't put my finger on. Whether it is because of the much-missed Denholm Elliott's (usual) standout performance, or the surprisingly erotic sex scenes with the lovely Miss Booth, I'm not sure. Either way, it compels the viewer to look closer at the elderly and remember the spark of life that is still contained within. When Denholm's character reminisces of his sexual cavorting as a young man, and they are still so vivid, it reminds you how brief our time on earth really is. A great piece that deserves another airing, if only as a reminder of the great Mr Elliott
