|Morris: A Life With Bells On- Mockumentary Spoof|
|Charles Thomas Oldham as Derecq Twist doing his morris dancing|
A morris dance is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music. It is based on rhythmic stepping and the execution of choreographed figures by a group of dancers. Implements such as sticks, swords, handkerchiefs and bells may also be wielded by the dancers. In a small number of dances for one or two men, steps are performed near and across a pair of clay tobacco pipes laid across each other on the floor.

Now, this is a film which you will either love or you will hate. Perhaps a little look at the trailer will help you decide which camp you will be in...
Unfortunately, even if you think this would be a great film for you, it is unavailable in Region 1 form for those of us in North America. But here's hoping that they will release it for the few of us over here who think this looks hilarious. I am now going to morris dance over to the door and let my dog out. Where are my bells and hankies anyway...
