A DAY OUT (UK, '72)

Post by Wallace on Mon Jan 13, 2014 9:17 pm

Another of Alan Bennett's works. I must say I found this simple story of 10 men taking a Sunday off for a bout of cross-country bicycling particularly charming.

Not a car to be seen and all that picturesque English rusticana. Appreciation of simple nature and Bennett's gentle dismissal of the foolishness of modern life.

Interesting to see all these bit actors, some which would go on to bigger roles. A young Sebastian (Brideshead Revisited) is here and doesn't even get mention in the credits.

No main character here. No real plot. Just an idyllic day. Pure delight.
