Thread Name: Morris: A Life With Bells On (film)
Subject: RE: Morris: A Life With Bells On
From the film trailer it looks like a very healthy perspective, showing the passion of those involved in Morris, the extreme lengths that "purists" will sometimes go to versus the youngsters' wish to innovate, and the position that Morris enjoys (if that is the word) in the national conscience (the butt of jokes and yet... "Morris is English", shouts Derek Jacobi when he sees a Californian dance troupe taking Morris to the stage). I can't wait to see the film!
As the hero says: "I breathe it, I live for it, I'd even die for it. In fact I know many that died doing it...!"
