Critic Reviews for Queen and Country
Don't let the British pedigree and nostalgic trimmings fool you: this is no Masterpiece Theatre exercise but a broad, high-spirited, riotously funny service comedy, on par with M*A*S*H and Stripes.
A wartime comedy of manners, it's a delightfully whimsical portrait of 1952 England, a time and place of class discord that's both uproarious and politically pointed.
The picture is upfront about being a sequel, but it may play better for those who aren't attached to the original film.
Given how richly his countryman Terence Davies has realized post-war England in movies like Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Deep Blue Sea, the cartoonishness of Queen And Country grates even further.
It's a pleasant, nostalgic movie that didn't need to be made (a memoir written, maybe), chiefly because he has nothing new to say about the postwar era.
