A Man Of No Importance

AManOfNoImportanceBB.5

(out of 5)


Forgettable drama about a London busman () in the 1960s whose shyness keeps him from finding any personal or sexual expression in his life. His love of the writings of Oscar Wilde leads him to attempt a production of Wilde’s Salome using passengers he meets on the job. Naturally, this doesn’t go over well with his friend () or sister (), nor do things get any easier when his sexuality is revealed through an unfortunate skirmish with the law.  It’s a grimy little film, but Finney’s performance is worth seeing.
