Summary
It is considered by many to be the finest British film ever made. A stirring masterpiece like no other. The indelible General Clive Candy barely survives four decades of tumultuous British history (1902 to 1942) only to see the world change irrevocably before his eyes. Blimp is both moving and slyly satirical, an incomparable film about war, love, and aging
