Dorset steam fair 1964,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Requiem for a Village (BFI Flipside) (DVD + Blu-ray)  (Blu-ray)
This Blu ray has three short films in its extras.The jury is I must admit still out as far as requiem goes, it was however the film about the steam fair, that I hoped would be good. Being from Dorset, the steam fair is of interest as it takes place locally, but is known internationally. This 15 min. film was beautifully shot in colour and is shown here in widescreen. The film is a little like the BTF Holiday and is quite fast paced. The editing is marvellous, as you would expect from David Gladwell. I always try to review things that others have passed over and Requiem already has two reviews, this then is what I have to add to those, another reason you might like to buy it, because if you do like the sound of those traction engines, carroselles, coloured lights and organ music etc. and if you weren't there in 64, and you wish you had been, you will love this, you can almost smell the candy floss!
