The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Reviews
Anyways, this movie is a great epic with a lighthearted feel and a charming, funny and outgoing look at a topic that is exactly the opposite (war).
I'll be watching this again.
Wonderful, interesting, moving movie. The life of a military officer, his loves, regrets, how the times change around him, and how he adapts to them, or not. The movie starts rather frenetically, which was off-putting, but once it settles down it is a wonderful movie.
Roger Livesey is great in the lead role, but it is the amazingly beautiful Deborah Kerr (in three roles) who steals the show.
WATCH THIS MOVIE. Yeah, it's from the 40s, but even the anti-B&W crowd can't complain here; they whipped out the Technicolor. Gorgeous. Righteous.
But at the same time, like Renoir, they are critical in just the mannerisms and what goes on in those little moments of those in military. Full review to come, but suffice it to say this s a VERY British film, and damn proud of it good sir, may we have some tea?
