Beautiful, interesting, incredible cinema.
A stifling made-for-television drama about Trevor, an unusually bashful mortician’s assistant, and his attempts at a conventional relationship.
Rather meandering early Leigh that leads nowhere in particular except a few riffs on the truths of human social interactions in all the awkward, shuffling and embarrassing shades you rarely see in mainstream television or commercial cinema.
YES, the release date is still misleading. And I cant get enough early Leigh.
uhh.... let's fix the date of this film: 1977.
Almost completely adorable. Instant favorite. One of those british films you need subtitles to understand anything.
