British Film

Often caricatured as no more than stiff upper lips and starched bonnets, British film actually offers some of the most vibrant and exciting movies there are. It's not just the acknowledged classics crafted by the likes of David Lean, Powell and Pressburger or Ealing studios: DVD and Blu-ray are introducing us to forgotten treasures that show just how passionate British film can be.
