Would love to see again
4 August 2017 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'd like to see this Brit opus, which I viewed on TVOntario in 1989, again. As told through the eyes of a young girl, the story concerns a newly-arrived teacher in a rural Northern Irish community. Her unorthodox behaviour and attitudes create confusion, hostility and some admiration. There is a sub-plot where the class goes to Paris and views the famous statue of the title. Religion is under the surface in all this: the new teacher is viewed suspiciously because she never declares what foot she digs with. It's a good film deserving of a higher profile than it seemingly has.
