Sztornó #

Released 11/16/2006

Description: Underrated in light of its actual (February 4, 2007) IMDb score of 6.4, this movie reminded me of what Joseph Heller's 'Something Happened' should look like if a movie was to be made out of it. Our middle-aged character's life is in a fragile balance at the begin and later that balance will, of course, be disturbed. Even without much in the method of drama at first, an at times nightmarish reality intermingles with nightmares, and, typically for a film from this region, state bureaucracy and the absurdities of a semi-legal order enjoy a role in moving developments along. So what is it that awaits our character down the informal street he is officially sent? Finished deconstruction? Or the 'unbearable lightness of being'? If you give the film the time to unfold, it will reward you revealing an entertaining idea by the end.

When The Bough Breaks Reviews:

When this film was made, the position of a young single working mother would have been just about too scandalous to contemplate. The film provides a very sympathetic portrayal of the difficulties which at that time made adoption a common outcome. We also see how hard it can be to live with the adoption decision over time, and how many implications there can be even years later. Some of the happenings may seem a tiny unlikely today due to changing attitudes and laws, but the calm and unsensational approach of this film makes it more than a mere tear-jerker.


Rosamund John has everytime been one of my movie heroines.My collection of her movies contains "Green for Danger" (1946), "The Method to the Stars" (1944), "The First of the Few" (1942), "The Upturned Glass" (1947) & "The Lamp Still Burns (1943).In every she plays stoic British heroines often with a background of WWII.In "When The Bough Breaks (1947) she plays a girl who works in a day care home for kids while their mothers are at work.She cannot have kids herself although she desperately yearns for one.Along comes Pat Roc with her tiny Jimmy whose father is a bigamist and who we never see.Holding down a job in a departmental shop and being a mother proves too much for Pat Roc and she agrees informally without legal documents that middle class Rosamund and her husband can adopt tiny Jimmy until such time as she can stand on her feet financially.She has a greatest mate (Brenda Bruce) who works at the same large shop as her, who is married to Leslie Dwyer with four children. Going to a dance Pat meets Bill Owen when friendship gradually turns to affection and then love.The nub of the movie examines the emotional drama between the natural mother (Pat Roc) and the adoptive mother (Rosamund John) and how this affects Jimmy who after 8 years has to live with his natural mother despite loving his adoptive parents.I won't divulge the final scene, suffice it to tell things turn out happily for all concerned.I've been waiting for this film to be uploaded by someone for some time and am glad this is a fresh addition to the YouTube.com stable of vintage 1940s films seen today 20/5/16


Patricia Roc was one of Britain's most famous stars of the 40s. Extremely pretty, she was often cast opposite more vibrant actresses to emphasize her virginal prettiness.Occasionally she was given a role to present she should really act if given the chance. "When the bough breaks" was on of those films. She stars with Rosamund John (a lovely restrained actress of some nice British movies - "The Method to the Stars" (1945), "Green for Danger" (1946), "Fame is the Spur" (1947)) in this movie about mother love.Patricia Roc stars as Lily Bates, a fresh mother who has just been said her "husband" has been arrested for bigamy. Finding things difficult she puts her baby into a nursery while she looks for a job. Rosamund John plays Frances, a nursery helper who develops a powerful bond with baby Jimmy (she had previously lost her own baby.)When Lily gets the flu, Frances offers to look after Jimmy until she recovers. When Lily goes to pick Jimmy up, she sees how satisfied and healthy he is and recommend that they adopt him - they eagerly agree.Years soon with a change in her fortunes Lily wants her son back. After taking Frances and her husband to court for custody of Jimmy, (they hadn't bothered to fill out papers so it was an illegal adoption) Jimmy comes to stay with Lily and her husband . The usual storyline follows - Jimmy doesn't like it there and runs away.It all works out in the end.Patricia Roc proves she can handle a 3 dimensional dramatic part and Rosamund John is perfect as always.
