This film is imprinted on my memory although I have not seen it for decades. It is a very human and moving story of the relationships within a family - over a Christmas I seem to remember. The acting is superb and the film features several extremely well-known actors of the time. In particular I remember the two grandchildren, one of whom says he/she has learnt a naughty word. When she tells the other one what it is he/she uses the word when all the adults are standing around and is puzzled when none of them shows any distress. I'll leave it to you to discover the naughty word used. Notes for this film say that it has not been released on DVD. Pity - I would buy one.
