candide for the '70s

gavcrimson's summary is full enough that there is little to add to it; except to comment that there are so many films of this nature which are conscientiously dishonest that it comes as a shock to realise how easy it would have been to show these stories as they really are.

London's miserable weather is captured to perfection, so is the dirtiness of the city, how lonely it is, and how no-one ever seems to be at home there.

this is a peculiarly muted film, and i don't really know of anything else quite like it; but people who see it on the title (or for the photographs on the publicity)are going to be as disappointed as the characters in the script.
