Five centuries ago a mural was created in a country church in the north of England and then hidden under layers of white paint. Looking at it again will be a distraction, the Rev. Mr. Keach tells WWI veteran Tom Birken who will spend a month in the country restoring the mural. Another veteran, James Moon, is looking for the grave of an ancestor of the patroness of the church who fought in the Crusades. The rector's wife, Alice, comes to see the mural and later visits Birken's bell tower abode, bringing a basket of apples. Will she open the book in which he has pressed the yellow rose she gave him earlier? Written by

Mr. Birkin, you should know here and now that you employment here does not have my support. But as the solicitors refuse to pay out the £1,000 bequest to our fabric fund until your job is finished I have no choice.

this is one of my all time favorite films. beautiful
From the opening moments when Firth gets off the train in the rain, and arrives in Oxgodby, this film is almost perfectly done. The acting, by Firth and Branaugh and Malahyde is fine, and believable. Firth arrives to restore a painting on a church wall. Shell -shocked from his service in France, and unhappy; the month at the lovely countryside restores him somewhat. The music, by Blake, is lovely. When I feel down, I put this on the VCR. I am restored. Wish it could be released again, as I have a rather poor copy. But I love it just the same Firth is wonderful
