    There is an �introduce yourself� thread for newbies, but for some of us longer established people, why don�t we have some fun and say what Britfilm most represents our character traits.



    I�ll start with telling you if I were a film, I would be �Whisky Galore�. Not because of any alcoholic reason (in fact I don�t drink and have never even tasted whisky in my life) but I have a Scottish accent, I have been told I am funny, and like the film I am sort of old fashioned but full of life.



    So if you were a Britfilm - what would you be?

    If I were a Britfilm I would prefer to think of myself as a mixture of 'Great Expectations', 'Oliver!' (with the exclamation mark kept in) and one eighth of 'Kind hearts and coronets'.



    However, a mixture of 'Educating Rita' and a bit of 'Withnail and I' is probably nearer the mark.

    I am a history freak and get so angry with the old US films from 'days of old when knights were bold' but I watch them! So I am going to have to be Monty Python and the Holy Grail to send them all up with the humour I appreciate.

    `Oliver!` for me too as I seem to be a waif and stray in this world and have often been seen as an outcast and irrelevant (someone to stamp on when the going gets tough), but I would also throw in `My fair lady` too as I have really tried to educate myself to the best of my ability and achived self esteem by that.



    Sorry to be so serious and philosophical

    No - I like that post. In fact it sounds as if you have the basis for a film right there!

    Best wishes

    One for me would be Life Of Brian as it mirrors my own views on religion

    Do buck up Fell, . You still have the divine Jenny to think about. Incidentally Mr G. worked with her once and his eyes go all misty when remembering those happy days....



    I guess it should be Darling for me, because I always want what I haven't got. Well, maybe not so much now as I've got a great life, so I'd also choose Mrs Miniver - ok I know it's not strictly a Britmovie - for my maternal qualities

    The Bed Sitting Room. Because I'm frankly weird.



    And I sort of move around in my day to day life to the soundtrack of that film. Which I suppose proves it.



    And I've got Marty Feldman in me.



    (That last bit is a lie, obviously ...)

    Another good thread.

    For me it would be Night of the Demon...see my self portrait on the left...

    It incorporates quite a few of my interests, spiritual, mystery with suspense and quite scary as it leaves lots to the imagination...

    Also not noted for its special effects but who needs em with dark woods and instant storms?



    Now, where did I put that bit of parchment?....can anyone smell burning??

    Initially promising, but a sad end result.
