Classic tale of family life in a Welsh valley., 14 Mar. 2000
Classic tale of family life in a Welsh valley at the beginning of the 20th Century. It's the story of Huw Morgan, son of a Collier in a small Welsh village, and his family. It depicts life in a small mining village at the turn of the Century, and how the lives of the Morgan family changed with the times. It also shows how the mines changed the Welsh landscape.
A film with humour, romance, courage, hardship and sadness, this film is one of all the time classics, and a must to watch.
Excellent performances by Walter Pigeon, Maureen O'Hara and the young Rodney McDowell, amongst others.
