A perfect example of how the 'New British Cinema' of the late '50s and early '60s has dated and become almost unwatchable.

Tony Richardson, who directed this mess, was once quoted as saying, "The British cinema is the worst in the world," and he was in a position to know.

[A Taste of Honey] has an earthy gusto and sincerity that lift its somewhat downbeat theme and drab surroundings.

Skilful performances, subtle visuals and the power of Delaney's writing all contribute to a landmark in British cinema.

Freed from the constricting confines of the stage, the shining honesty, the trials, the disenchantment of the drama's low-born Lancashire principals have become all the more striking and true.

Though outdated, this offebat, well-acted melodrama was a significant work in the British school of Kitchen Sink realism and in the career of Tony Richardson (better known for Tom Jones).
