What a wonderful surprise on DSTV Television in South Africa when quite unheralded they showed 'Keeping Mum' on their Action Channel and described it as a Horror story. Because i saw that Maggie Smith was in the film and thought i can't imagine her in a horror story, i decided i would watch it and how glad i am that i did.

This film is a little gem and don't know why i have not heard of it in the last nine years(It was made in 2005). I was hesitant about seeing Rowan Atkinson in a feature film but he is excellent as the vicar of the country village of 'Little Wallop', while his wife played by Kristin Scott Thomas ('The English Patient', a film that i did not appreciate) is equally as good, while Maggie Smith as the housekeeper!!!!! is her usual superb self. Patrick Swayze, as the golf instructor, in what must have been one of his last roles before he died of cancer(You can see he is not a well man) plays his role in the plot with aplomb. The rest of the supporting cast also perform really well.

The storyline (well documented) by Amazon and previous reviewers is really excellent, the photography, music where applicable and the whole production out of the top drawer. I wish they would make more comedies of this calibre such as 'Passed away' with Bob Hoskins, they help to make the world a brighter place in these difficult times.

Give yourself a treat and see this little British gem, you will not regret it and the ending of the film is so beautifully crafted. Well done to all those involved with this production.

Classic British comedy. Whomsoever came up with the cast combination is a genius. Long may the British Film Industry continue to produce such joy.

So very funny. The acting and photography brilliant. A feel good film! One part could be considered a bit 'off' (though relevant in my view) - my daughter and her boyfriend didn't like it because of that.

I like this film a lot but mind the age rating as it did terrify me when I first saw it aged 9. I was a wussy child though so yours may well be fine. Really, though who can find fault with Maggie Smith and Rowan Atkinson?

Maggie Smith at her comedy best and the other main characters are brilliant - well worth a watch!
