It's not a comedy - it's a tragedy !
12 July 2004 | by BRIAN-403See all my reviews

At a time when the term "British film comedy" is likely to invoke a groan it is a tragedy that this film is being prevented from reaching a much wider audience. For whatever reason I find it incredible that this little gem of a British film comedy cannot obtain clearance either for television repeat or for issue in video or DVD format. Something must be done ! I cannot understand why anybody involved with this film would not be extremely delighted to give clearance for its revival particularly as the performances, writing and direction of this minor masterpiece of comedy drama could bring so much more pleasure to so many more people.
