Goofs

In the final scene where the snow is falling and settling in the background you can see green snow free leaves on what looks like a summers day. See more »

A real golden film in an era that has lost its shine.

I have to say that I am not a fan of George Cole. That aside this film has the quality of the films of the Golden era. If this was in black and white you would think it was an oscar winner.

The acting is good and direction clear, the flashback effect is good and gives a lovely feeling of memories.

All in all a great film and one that should get more notice from the "bosses" in the industry.
