I agree that this is an excellent film. I bought the DVD.It is sad that so many younger people today are turned off by B&W movies. I grew up on B&W TV and have no problem with it.Ms. Caron is a stunning actress and gives a great performance. The film may be too English and the content her predicament)too dated for many viewers but it is a gem.Hope some day they produce a better quality DVD, though I doubt they will. The cheap copy I bought (how ignominious for it to be combined with Darling – another excellent film).I suppose one has to be grateful that it was released at all.A piece of trivia: I understand that Ms. Caron runs a hotel in France. I’d love to go stay there! Throughout her movie career there was an integrity that always shone through.
If I were asked to name my second favourite film I would have to consider many; my favourite is an easy choiceThe L-Shaped Room. As a teenager I saw it on its first release, then four times soon after. Bryan Forbes has crafted this film from a rather maudlin novel by Lynne Reid Banks; it becomes, in his hands, quite a different storya work of art. Leslie Caron, although uniformly fine in all her films, has never been better than she is here. The supporting actors (and there are many) all give sensitive, human performances. The evocative score (parts of the first movement of the First Piano Concerto by Brahms) is a consummate fit with the narrative. The result of this collaboration of sources and talents is a restrained, perfect tapestry that depicts the human condition. The L-Shaped Room has no flawsnone.

Not knowing what to do Jean went to the downtrodden section of London's Notting Hill to find a place to stay as well as what to do with her giving, or not giving, birth to Terry's child. Should she go full term or have the child aborted. The problem with having an abortion back then in 1962 England is that abortions were illegal!Renting a top-floor apartment and this Notting Hill boarding house Jean soon became friendly with a number of her neighbors. One of them Toby, Tom Bell, a struggling 28 year-old writer took a liking to the sweet and insecure Jean as soon as he saw her giving her a hand with her luggage up the six flight of stairs. There's also former stage actress Mavis, Cicely Courtneidge…
