A traditional rural English Christmas, reluctantly spent with the predominantly geriatric family (who all have their quirks and eccentricities) ends in tragedy after a practical joke goes horribly wrong.
Epitome of a traditional rural English Christmas, reluctantly spent with the predominantly geriatric family, who all have their quirks and eccentricities.
John Mills plays the central role and is the most level headed of the bunch. He plays on the dementia and insanity of the others and livens things up by mocking them. However he quickly becomes irritated by them and begins staging a practical joke, resulting in a catastrophic tragedy.
Perfectly matched cast of veterans like Mills, Withers and Hordern brought together with comedy, drama and ultimate demise.
(I had this on a VHS cassette that I accidentally erased and I am desperate to locate a copy)
