Storyline

Jasper is the perfect English Civil Servant - polite and refined. But to his girl friend, and even to himself, he is a bore. So he decides to become a painter in Paris. Not so fast. The powers-that-be send him to the country to dismantle a forgotten research unit which is headquartered in an old mansion. The eccentric owner lives in a railway train, on his own 'branch line', letting the government pay for the upkeep of his ancestral home. The small research unit enjoys running the stately home and everyone is content with the status quo. Enter Jasper who quickly meets Lord Flamborough's three daughters, who, in one way or another contrive to make Jasper feel very much at home. Jasper's life is turned upside down, and he must eventually decide where his own personal future will lie. Written by Derek Picken <dpicken@email.msn.com>

Excellent English subtle comedy of love, life and manners
17 April 1999 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

A truly English escapist romantic comedy, in which a disillusioned civil servant finds love, tranquillity and the return of his sense of self, whilst on a special assignment to a small government "research" establishment at a country estate in the rural East Anglia (part of eastern England) of the 1950s. The fascination of a part of the English psyche then and now with the past (especially railways and agricultural machinery) is well caught, as is the need for the "rural idyll".

This version of Arcadia is a marvellous adaptation of a book by John Hadfield, with the entire cast being accurate in the portrayal of the atmosphere required. A genuine delight.
