Wonderful film. Was only talking about it last night and will try to watch it over the weekend. Derek Jacobi's portrayal of the neo-nazi head of the 'Morris Circle' is a masterpiece in ham acting :-)

Netflix lists, but says it's not available yet. It gives a "Save" button, which puts it on a list to add to your queue when it becomes available. Can't hurt to click it to show interest...

hint.. just try googling ways to enter a code number on your remote control
to safely hack your DVD player
so it becomes region free.
Or easily discover how to do likewise with your computers DVD player.
With most recent viewing equipment this is usually not such a difficult 'problem' to overcome.

Any tech savvy young kid in your family would know how to help do this
within minutes.

I have checked Amazon (Amazon US even).   It appears the version they are now selling in the US is not US-compatible.

Frustration.

Now what sense does that make?

I have sent them a comment to that effect (and I'm not the only one, but the more people who do, the more likely they might possibly address this problem.) You would think both the firm selling the product and Amazon itself would want to raise sales.

We bought the DVD but decided not to watch it until we had seen the screening here on the Isle of Wight.

I wrote a review, ( Morris with bells on....review )
for our Morris side site. If you can tear yourself away from reading about the newest side on the Island, scoll to the bottom article.

As I sort of said in the article, pin back your blinkers, engage fun and enjoy.

yeah, finally got round to watching it on Blighty this week.

Wife loved it all and laughed every few seconds from start to finish.

I took a while to warm to the 'dramedy' until the darker slightly more serious aspects
started to balance out the weaker sub "Bellamy's People" pastiche elements.

This film is however the finest tribute to the mystical properties of extra strong rough cider
ever depicted in any art form.

This west country boy could smell it and taste it; made me very thirsty after nearly 5 months on the waggon
[excepting xmas & new year.. cheers...]
for personal health & safety reasons...

Just wondering what happened to that guy who took all our emails and phone numbers when we went to see it in Edinburgh last September, the idea being that he would re-start a Lothian Morris side, and need a few musicians too.
None of us ever heard any more about it! If you're reading this, please PM me.
Looking forward to the DVD.

Thanks for telling us that - the Blighty Channel is also on Virgin Media (cable), number 206 - here. And they've also got an accompanying programme about the making of the film, and about Morris dancing - "Morris in the Making"

Maybe we can hope in time the film will get a showing on some channel everyone can get.

I do hope this hasn't been posted about bells!

The very mellow jazz sax player, Lester Young, had his own way of talking. If he liked something very much, he would always say, "Bells baby!!!"

He also gave Billie Holiday her nickname, Lady Day.

And Harry Edison who liked candy... Sweets Edison.

We were in Lincoln last week-end and noticed that the local HMV shop had the CD of the film on its shelves.

When I had previously gone to order it from HMV they stated they would not sell it in their shops (only through their website)because there was no demand.

Have they seen the light and now realise that not everyone buys via the Internet
