One of the finest films ever made

I have been known to write enthusiastically about Jack Clayton's 1967 film Our Mother's House - its music in particular.

But I am nothing next to Scott Murray in the Sydney Morning Herald:
Gloriously photographed by Larry Pizer and with an unforgettably haunting score from Georges Delerue, this film is near perfect. Bogarde has never been so compelling or sinister, a group of child actors never so uniformly stellar. Tender, bittersweet and unlikely to ever be forgotten, this is one of the finest films ever made.
