A magnificent film.Reviewed bySanDiegoVote: 9/10
I regard this movie as a classic ahead of its time! Made in the early 1970s, it starts with a rather dire scenario in the age where fox hunting was the norm, but this movie dares to question the status quo in that setting. It also introduces an interracial mix of a pair of unlikely mates, creatures against all odds, bound in their friendship & respect & mutual love.
It was skillfully crafted against a plot of human romance & love & frailty, but where the protagonists were presented as daring to think beyond the square, sadly lacking in our current society of the 21st millennium, where anyone who dares to think of broader options is to be regarded as a fraud or a terrorist for daring to question rationalists or political cheats who wish to remain unchallenged, and mostly do! But this movie is much more than a fable. It has a couple of moments of cinema that should remain clasped in the heart of movie lovers. And still beyond, it is a tale of the oppressed, the downtrodden, the humbled & the tortured, across mankind & into nature too. It is FOOD for the soul & the spirit of creature & man & God alike, for those who have eyes to see & ears to hear!
Good to see Eric Porter, a very underrated actor, in the role as a gamekeeper, who puts his head in the noose, when he rears a tame fox. A 1970's film which reminded me of my country days, before things because a bit too sophisticated. Good film for a quiet hour or two. A very young-looking Dennis Waterman as a hunt assistant, before his break into the big time with John Thaw. One of these films hat you don't think-sounds very interesting, but when you sit down and get into it, you just need to see it to the ens. Jeremy Kemp as a rather worn out English country gentleman,is a pleasure to watch.I would recommend the film to anybody, I don't know how I miss it first time round.
