A true classic British film

I really did enjoy this film.I seen it two times as a teenager,and was really touched on the beauty and English countryside.It is a film that appeals to both young and old .though I do think that some of the scenes that i remember especially a love scene has been cut I bought a video of the film and noticed that something was missing.I did read the book by James Rook.THE BALLAD OF THE BELSTONE FOX..i really do think that this film does the book justice.Fox hunting has now been banned in England so the film also puts on record a fox hunt that now most probably will be resigned to history books...On reading the book I think the hunt featured was based on the BELVOIR HUNT based in Lincolnshire
