An over-rated "arty" film?
18 November 2004 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this film when it first came out in 1974 as there was a lot of publicity about what a revolutionary film it was and it was set locally to where I was living at the time, Cambridge, England.

I'm afraid that I was not impressed.

Pretty pictures and an "arty" film, but nothing much happens in any sort of way for the full the full length of the film and you are left coming out thinking "what was that all about?".

If you like pictures of rural scenery and are put off by action or complicated plot you will love this film.

A film to take you back in time...
