In 1905, after ten years of missionary work in Africa, the Reverend Charles Fortescue (Michael Palin, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, A Fish Called Wanda) is recalled to England, where his bishop gives him his new assignment - to take charge of a slum mission for prostitutes. Charles hopes Deborah, his fiancée, will object and give him an excuse to say no to the bishop. But she is so imperturbably innocent that she totally fails to understand what he is being asked to do, and urges him to do his best. He obtains money for the running of the mission from a wealthy woman, Lady Ames (Maggie Smith, Ladies in Lavender, Gosford Park), whom he meets on the boat sailing to England from Africa. Lady Ames guarantees Fortescue the money on the condition that he takes it upon himself to add a little spice to her dormant sex life.

Customer Reviews

Much better than I expected

It's not a film that's talked about but Palin and Maggie have that wonderful dry wit that the Brits appreciate. If you like 'A Fish called Wanda' you're there.
