Customer Review

on 7 August 2009
The Bed Sitting Room is many things, an oddball British comedy with few laughs, performed by a stellar cast of acting and comic talent, but is an oddity in every sense, the tone never quite gels either as farce or tragedy it is a curious and queasy melange of both. It is as if the Cormac MacCarthy novel The Road, with its bleak post apocalyptic landscape had been adapted by the Carry on crew and played out as a dark and very british comedy. It is wonderful to have it available, especially as it is such a good and pristine example of the work of the great production designer Assheton Gorton (Blow Up, The Knack, The French Lieutenatnt's Woman etc)and in Blu-ray format too. If nothing else it is a repository of fine quirky performances by so many character actors and comedians,so few of whom (sadly) are still with us. Highly reccomended but as a curiosity.
