5.0 out of 5 stars call me dutch, 20 Mar. 2008
This review is from: The Lavender Hill Mob [DVD] (DVD)
a classic british comedy comes to dvd. the film is the tale of mister holland, a lowly bank clerk who comes to work each day in his suit and bowler hat, and fusses a lot about his job, which is transferring gold bullion to a bank. everyone thinks he's a dull little man with no imagination, but he's really got more than anyone expects, and has been planning for years to rob the bank and get away with the gold.

When he meets mister pendlebury, a souvenir trinket maker, he finally has the last element of his plan. the two recruit a couple of crooks to help them, and the robbery of the century is go. but will they get away with it?

Depicting a long gone britain of the the early 50's, this is a fun gentle comedy. it's not laugh out loud for most of it but it's charming throughout, and it features a superb performance from alec guinness as holland, a little man with a big imagination. mind you the last fifteen minutes when things go awry and they have to improvise wildly to succeed are side splittingly funny, culminating in one of cinema's most memorable car chases ever.

the dvd has direct scene access and the original trailer for the movie.

A classic, and great to have it on dvd to enjoy again and again
