Play for Today: Penda's Fen

Alan Clarke United Kingdom, 1974

mubianer's rating of the film Penda's Fen

I liked how dream and reality merged together. Serious themes, but light too. I liked the rural slowness, and how our hero was both a guy to feel sympathy for and to dislike. The film itself has a non-hurried pace I quite like. Favourite scene: The road sign being re-painted.
