The main character is Peggy, played by Pamela Oei who wants to be married and the men she encounters. All the men are portrayed well with their own good and bad points. Peggy yearns for romance but is also a realist. Oei makes a seemingly plain girl into an interesting, vital personality.
Besides Osei there is lots of fine acting including the great Burt Kwouk. Hopefully he won't go down in film history as the man who jumped out of cupboards to attack Peter Seller's Inspector Clouseau! He pops up now and then in films. (See his dignified role in Jet Li's 'Kiss of the Dragon').
The colours are garish enough for a film set in the sixties although the story is timeless and could be set anywhere. There is an awful lot of inferior British film making these days so films like this which are small scale but full of honesty about the human condition are to be treasured.
