The Romantic Age
4 January 2010 | by boogie67See all my reviews

Somewhat dated in this post-feminist age, the premise of the story is possibly illegal, based as it is upon the notion that men can be seduced by teen-aged girls! If one looks past these anomalies, however (and that is a big 'ask') there are some memorable performances from the main players, including Petula Clark as the petulant daughter, who, at one point, rather charmingly receives her 'come-uppance' over the knee of the family butler. The film-goer is treated to a delightful, if somewhat tuneless, early example of Miss Clark's adolescent singing skills. It's hard to imagine a scene such as this getting past the censors today!
