Sooner I get back to fucking London, the fucking better. A new fucking coat. Fucking doors that fucking shout. And citizens that pay small fucking reckoning to astrology. I would rather die of the fucking plague in the fucking fleet than spend another fucking minute in the countryside.

This movie is about ninety minutes of purgatory, I think.
Four men from the time period of Oliver Cromwell, I think, during a battle, I think, escape the perceived carnage by falling through a rural hedge. They form a four-man band and in a weary, bedraggled condition, trudge a field with ale on their mind. What follows then is plain and simple, puzzlement.
After spending an hour figuring out what I had just viewed I've plumped for, what you reap in life is what you sow in the afterlife.
I also watched the director's vague explanation of what the film is about and I am none the wiser. I think my assessment will at least give a future viewer something to mull over.
