Painted Boats

0 Love It
Save it
Ealing docu-drama portrait of English canal life, modestly charting the lives of two boat families with the aid of a Louis MacNeice commentary, and examining the demands of tradition and change in the immediate postwar world. The sole product of a proposed studio series to consolidate the wartime fusions of fiction and documentary, elsewhere sustained only intermittently until TV stepped wholeheartedly into the breach.
