Fascinating and beautifully acted docu-drama
depesando8 January 2006
Imaginative production intertwining and examining the 'hidden' daily lives of three 'ordinary' people in post war Britain, touching on homosexuality, single women making their way in life post-war and a housewife handling the less than welcome return of her husband. Not an east thing to watch sometimes, and quite moving in parts, its an excellent piece of social history taken from the post war Mass-Observation studies that documented peoples daily lives in honest detail. Sarah Parish is particularly good, portraying an intelligent but frustrated young woman who has made her own life for herself but has to make way for the men returning from war - I was very impressed by the way even her physical movements and the way she sat and walked was perfect for the period. A very good piece of work all round.
