The Knack

The French/German television channel ARTE has been showing films from the sixties this summer, and tonight was an English madcap comedy called The Knack. Not the band-the film.

There was a very funny moment in the middle of all the shennanigans where one of the characters says it's time for tea. They rode a bed pulled by a car through the streets of London before they floated the same bed on oil drums and floating across the water. Then they were back home and as a transition into the next madcap adventure, they brewed up.

It was perfect. Every film needs a tea break. The action lags, we haven't decided what'll happen next. Well let's have some tea.
