Customer Review

on 11 June 2011
Ok that might sound a contradiction but this is a very watchable film especially if you're on the high side of 60 and remember the attitudes and emotions the war forced upon us and how we stood to it - but this isn't a war film its a family going through laughter and tears , damp air-raid shelters simple things like a nice cuppa and the evening 'paper daughter meets RAF officer her family ordinary but 'propa', his posh and hard to please so it all seems doomed anyway but then his plane is lost he's feared killed .....
Dad (Jack Warner) goes down to the pub, stumbles over his neighbour whose been bombed out , Jimmy James and Eli stagger in and one of England's finest comedians gives spirits as well as pints of 'pigs ear' a lift.
There's a lot in this film, it moves along well and no empty moments its well worth watching and collecting, the actors never fail and the story line is realist with details often missed in other similar films. So if you like Jack Warner as Dad Twigg (a pre Joe Huggett), Marjorie Rohodes as Mother (a roll she was 'made to measure' for in numerous films) and a'blink and you miss me' roll as son for Anthony Newley it's a lovely film.
