Morris: A Life with Bells On is said to be the next sleeper hit – but only time will tell whether it will achieve this heady domain of acclaim and success. The film has been described as a mockumentary following the life of one rebel Morris dancer Derecq Twist. Beset by prim traditionalists it tells the story of this one man’s struggle to drag, kick and cajole an ancient practice into the 21st Century, in the nicest possible way, of course. If the interest on the internet is anything to go by, this one is destined to be screened worldwide by popular demand just so long as at least one distribution company takes notice.
We have been lucky – despite not being on general release yet, Morris: A Life with Bells On came to a hall near us and we had the added promise of a demonstration of Morris Dancing from the Isca Morris men. Time to organise a horde of willing victims and enjoy a night out – get out my note book and write an official film review of "Morris: A Life with Bells On".
