Family and friends are to be treasured, particularly in wartime, and everyone looks to be having fun in this beautifully shot film. From the cheerful group at a young woman's birthday party to a more sedate family tea, and then a sing-along around a piano, filmmaker Ernest Hart - Norma's father - provides us with a delightful record of people enjoying each other's company in difficult times.
