As quintessentially homegrown as a game of cricket or a plate of fish-and-chips, Morris dancing is one of Englands most ancient roots traditions. And yet to your average man on the street, its seen as little more than a national joke. And a bad national joke at that. Something to ridicule. Something to be embarrassed about. Things have always been a little different for actor and filmmaker Tim Plester. Tim hails from a family of Morris dancers, and was raised in the quiet North Oxfordshire
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
An undeniably charming film about morris dancing that, despite its jokey title, turns out to be a very personal essay-meditation on identity and tradition.
The film feels like an instructive and instinctive dip into something mysterious and tense.
It's a meandering, idyllic and odd family history that feels like a sleepy Sunday walk in the country.
