Forbes' dialogue sometimes grates, the film risks running into a dead end (Fosset is stuck with nowhere to go and no prospects), but this is compelling fare all the same. Cameraman Douglas Slocombe (who went on to shoot Raiders of the Lost Ark) makes the boarding house seem as gloomy and oppressive as a Gothic mansion. Forbes doesn't sentimentalise at all. The London he portrays is nothing like the swinging, hedonistic city shown in later British movies of the 60s. --Geoffrey Macnab --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's terrific film, and I love it. Always did. It's a beautifully photographed, well acted, touching adult comedy drama, and a British classic. Read morePublished 12 months ago by addison de witt
Just so, so good. Brooding B&W, reminding us of how poor so much of the UK was back then.
A classic for good reason.
