This was one of the most influential movies in my life, awakened me to many things including the beauty of good camera-work and multi-layered scripting. A seemingly simple 'coming-of-age' story, highly sexually charged and with deeply significant climax. Why is it impossible to get a copy in the UK of this UK movie, when it seems it is also shown a lot on TV in other countries, yet never in the UK! Crazy! This seems to be just another example of how we Brits constantly put ourselves down, forget about our good work which influences others and are generally our own worst enemies! I guess I have to make a trip to Canada to buy a copy......... and a DVD that will play it!:¬)()
