Film, Comedy

Time Out says

An upmarket cast delivers mostly classy goods in this very English, dodgily conceived package. A middle-aged small farmer's apparent delight on the death of his racy old mum promises a black comedy which fails to materialise. Given the level of humour - dildo gags and an (admittedly) memorable accident with superglue - that's no great loss, as the film makes its serious points best. Poignancy is compromised, though, by the ludicrously dated conceit of the arty French sexpot turning up on the doorstep, and a mawkish ending.
