A Canterbury Tale

Posted by martinteller on October 21, 2006

I don’t get very excited for Powell & Pressburger, yet I liked this one despite myself.  Very bucolic and infectiously optimistic, patriotic and stirring without being too hokey.  The movie touches a lot of bases, but does so with a gentle breeziness that carries you along from one theme to another.  Almost immediately I was attached to the characters and was pleased to share their journey.  Not exactly “my” kind of film, but refreshing and satisfying nonetheless.  Rating: 8
