    It's many years since I saw this powerful film so I'm looking forward to watching it again. Bryan Forbes was so skillful in his writing and direction to be able to realistically portray how life was for many people in the Britain of the 1960 such as The Whisperers, The Angry Silence, The L-Shaped Room etc.

    I agree with you. He achieved an enviable body of work during this period, all of which have stood the test of time.

    WHISPERERS is a powerful look at the elderly poor, but it is relentlessly bleak and doesn't make for a good repeat-view movie. I actually saw this at college in '69 0r '70, and have no desire to own it.
