Last of The Summer Mime

19 Jul

Cut-price version of the Holmfirth-filmed series as the actors get paid extra if they speak.  With no dialogue, they show is free to explore its underlying themes – Howard and Marina’s affair, Russ Abbot’s delusions and the obligatory exploration of old men in bathtubs going down hills.  It could also be filmed on soviet black and white film stock for a further Brechtian Verfremdung effect
