Storyline

During the Suez Crisis of 1956, two young clerks at the stuffy Foreign Office in Whitehall display little interest in the decline of the British Empire. To their eyes, it can hardly compete with girls, rock music (including "Lay Down Your Arms"), and the intrigue of romantic entanglements. Written by Bhob Stewart <bhob@genie.com>

Captain: Now, you've all got clearance. You don't need any reminding, I hope, of the hell on earth which will await you if you open your mouths about anything whatsoever that goes on in this little room. You'll have your balls cut off. But only after they've been fried in hot camel's piss.

absolutely brilliant!!!
30 January 1999 | by (the lower depths) – See all my reviews

Like all of Dennis Potter's work, this shows us what film could & should be. It wakens all the old dormant brain cells. Yes, imagination & inspiration do still live & are still the main ingredients of REAL ART!!! Not necessarily compatible with democracy, tho, maybe, who knows?
