Synopsis: Lonely, scruffy old farmer brings in an attractive young girl as a housekeeper. He develops a lust/ love desire for her - she sees a way of making some money.<br/><br/>Pros:1) Beautiful photography immersing you in the best or rural England: rolling landscape, green country buses, stone built villages. A great trip escapist trip for city dwellers.2) Fantastic performances from John Mills (did he ever not do this?) and Celia White.3) Engaging story that, although slow, keeps you just about interested<br/><br/>Cons:1) This is really a short story dragged out to 90 mins. If you are happy to watch the scenery and absorb the mood then that&#39;s fine but there are some who, used to the constant sensual barrage that typifies so many recent films, might find this a bit slow2) The shock ending isn&#39;t really necessary and doesn&#39;t feel like it belongs to the rest of the film<br/><br/>Unusual aspects:The film centres around Dulcima and we are expected to sympathise with her. However not only are her morals questionable but her ruthless exploitation of the old farmers loneliness suggest that she is not really a nice person at all. Meanwhile, the farmers totally understandable obsession with her is portrayed as being creepy. This is assuaged a little towards the end where we finally get a bit of pathos as we see his tragic wedding preparations in contrast to her desire to run off with her lover but in reality the pathos started much earlier and her duplicity and lack of empathy with him was always the root of the tragedy. One wonders how different this film would have been if our sympathies had been directed from the start to be with him rather than her.

Top-billed Carol White makes a very unlikely match with John Mills, then re-inventing himself as a character actor following &#39;The Family Way&#39; and &#39;Ryan&#39;s Daughter&#39;.<br/><br/>It&#39;s very prettily photographed in Gloucestershire by Tony Imi but so parodic (Mills&#39;s rival in love is even a gamekeeper) that some reviewers have even mistaken it for a comedy; although it certainly doesn&#39;t end like one!

this film was great ,it&#39;s quirky ,and john mills was great in this film.it shows what a man would do for lust,and a greedy woman.it has the full run of human emotions,and shows how far people will go for what they want in life.carol white was good in this,she was unhappy with this life ,then realised a way to help herself by manipulation and sexual teasing.the film was suggestive without being explicit.the film has a tragic ending-not unexpected,just not clear how it would end.i saw this on t.v a long time ago-and have been trying to get a copy for my self for home viewing-but unable to find one,can any one help me by letting me know where to buy a copy-DVD if poss?
