Clockwork mice is up there with the British classics. I feel that it has all the ingredients that make a good quality British movie. Great story, believable characters, great acting and beautifully filmed. As somebody that works with children who have behavioral difficulties, I recognise many of the characters and situations within the film. I also recognise some of the world weary cynicism of the longer serving members of staff when faced with the fresh faced optimism of the new teacher (shame he went on to become Voldemort really!).
So why the heck was the DVD withdrawn in under a year??? blessed if I know.
