Magical !
16 January 2005 | by (Urmston, Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that once seen stays in your mind always - initially for the haunting theme ( Engelbert Humperdinck's most bearable work ! ) but then for a dreamy London unsurpassed until Four Weddings/Notting Hill

It is also one of the films that should have been made more readily available on video or DVD - thank goodness for those rare TV showings on Channel 4. £75 for a video seems high but in this case it would be worth it.

Strange that some of Peter Cooks ( Judy Huxtable's husband at this time ) like The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer and The Wrong Box are also woefully unavailable. Oh for a legal short run on-demand DVD press.
