The Holly and The Ivy has become a Christmas tradition in our house! I first saw it a few years ago on TV and was absolutely enchanted by it. I do have a fondness for English films of the 50s and 60s anyway but I would honestly recommend it to anyone. From the very first scenes where the invitations are being delivered until the heart-warming ending, this film is a pure joy. I think we would all want to live in a rectory in Norfolk if we are honest, well at Christmas-time anyway! A very nostalgic, English (it couldn`t have been made anywhere else) film that looks fabulous and gives you a warm Christmassy glow. Wonderful!
