Rope soup? Call that a culture?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Water [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This oft-overlooked film is not only clever, but very heavy on political satire, complete with Mrs Thatcher throwing a paper knife at one of her ministers! It is NOT to be missed, my only regret is that is not available on DVD! The funniest, best film you will ever see (and yes, they did use the local crop to make "soup", or "rope" (according to their needs at the time!). Billy Connelly is superb as "Delgado", whilst Michael Caine puts in his best performance since "The Italian Job". Watch out for the dope-smoking and cannon going off, though! ENJOY!!!
