Considering this film was made in 1970, its storyline has many elements and statements that have been said recently in the news.
Global warming, famine and the idea that nature has finally given up after being overwhelmed by pollution.
Nigel Davenport gives a convincing performance with a little known supporting cast. A young Wendy Richards also appears.
Some of the scenes are unexpectedly shocking and graphic.
I thought this disturbing and thought provoking film was really excellent and I'm glad I bought it.
The copy was excellent quality.

I remembered this from my childhood and was never allowed to see it – too horrible I was told. All these years later and I finally made up for lost time. It is set at a time when the idea that global pollution was finally gaining traction as being a killer of the planet. Here we see that a cancer or virus is starting to kill all of the world’s grass’s. This is all plants from the grass family, wheat, rye, barley, rice etc. It starts in East Asia and India but soon the virus starts to spread to Europe.

John Custance (Nigel davenport – ‘Greystoke’, ‘Chariots of Fire’ etc) is an architect living in London with his wife and daughter. He has a brother living on a farm in the North of England and they are aware that things could go wrong if the government don’t handle things well. The old adage that we are only three meals away from anarchy is uppermost in their minds. Then things escalate very quickly as the fabric of society unravels it soon becomes everyman and woman for themselves as mankind descends into a dog eat dog world.

John and his family try to make it to his brothers but face many an obstacle including, biker gangs, soldiers gone bad and a load of people hell bent on protecting their own – at all costs.

I absolutely loved this; filmed in 1970 everything was contemporary and so in many respects the first part is like a time capsule. The existential elements around the group and what we may do to survive are excellent. Some of the acting is a bit am dram. But Nigel Davenport always brings a gravitas to all his roles which saves nigh on every scene – even where it doesn’t really need it. Wendy Richard also makes an early appearance as a lady of easy virtue.

A film I've waited forever to see, quite watchable, heavy handed treatment of still controversial subject, I think it reflects the pessimism of it's time, especially those already on the environmental cause bandwagon. Film is both at times enhanced, and undermined, by the supporting cast of unknowns / non actors. A bit rushed with some clever bits, and some clumsy scenes. Great theme song, performed by Roger Whittaker, that helps the films message.

This is a dreadful adaptation of a very good and original book. Do your self a favour and read the book instead.
