Movie Reviews

Mr Polly:Nature's Gentleman
Rodney M. Pyne | Sydney,Australia | 03/28/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"To my knowledge,this was never aired in Australia.That's a pity.I'd always liked this rather atypical HG Wells tale.There aren't any aliens from Mars or time travellers from another century.It's a simple but heartwarming tale of a man who goes to great lengths to answer that question we all seek to answer in our lives:what makes me happy? Mr Polly goes to great lengths to find out and his ending is very far removed from its beginning.
This video version of the novel succeeds in a pleasant,understated way.The settings are attractive,the characters amusing as well as genuine.
The opening scene on the rocky headland,where Mr Polly considers his life and its pluses and minuses,is both moving and spellbinding.The players are well cast,with the villain/s awesome and the goodies believable.This is a very enjoyable film and one that could be watched more than once."
