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
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.
