If ever a film encapsulated the eccentricity of 'typical' English life whilst set in a 'typical' English landscape setting, then this is it. I must have seen it over 50 times, and I never get tired of it. It's a bit of an obsession to be honest, but a harmless form of escapism when compared to modern war films or games.
If you can get hold of a copy on DVD, please do, and see if you can understand what I am on about. If you do like it, then I can guarantee that you will watch it more than once. It is one of the most surreal films I have ever seen. If you want it but cannot find it on eBay etc, then I will find a copy for you.
