    A charming personal film from Powell & Pressburger. Three young people investigate a strange crime in a small village near Canterbury. The film paints a picture of England during WWII with a delicate rhythm, but retains little of Chaucer's classic story. A good, but not a great film worth seeing from time-to-time. I give it a 3.5/5.

    Sweet story that very much has the co-director's magic touch. Good cast, very well written. The character development is excellent. Entertaining, well photographed and a fine score.

    I just happened to turn on the TV this morning as this movie was starting, and I was completely surprised by how good it was. Please, please show it again-- many more times! It is an incredible movie, and I love to have a chance to see it again!!

  • Please re-schedule

    Because the time listed was not correct, my DVR did not record the end of this film. Please re-schedule, as soon as possible, so that we can actualy see it.Thanks.

  • Too good to be shortchanged.

    "A Canterbury Tale" is a great example of English wartime subject and film-making. It deserved CORRECT airtime listing in "Now Playing." Instead, TCM announced a runtime that was 29 minutes less than the actual film. God knows when you will ever show this one again in your endless rotation of Hollywood "stars." Come on! Great films are more than studio stock. PLEASE schedule this one again, SOON.
