“It’s a bloody mandola!”

…which is an octave lower than a mandolin, apparently. That’s what the banjo man (“bloody idiots – they think it’s a banjo!”) tells us in this short student film about… actually, I’m not sure what it’s about. Old age? Loneliness? Sheer bloody persistence? English eccentricity? All those things, plus one man’s determination to remain connected to those around him.

It stars Mr Ralph Settle, CMBHI (??) who is a local “character” where daughter number 2 normally lives. Some of her friends appear briefly in the film when Ralph goes into Walkabout, the bar that featured in the open mic night in a previous post. I find it funny and sad by turns, but always affectionate and very inspiring. Enjoy.
