Rating:
Quartet is a film that consists of a series of four short films based on stories written by W. Somerset Maugham. The short films are titled The Facts of Life, The Alien Corn, The Kite, and The Colonel's Lady. The Facts of Life follows the experiences of a young tennis player (Basil Radford) when he travels to Monte Carlo, Monaco to compete in a tournament. His parents tell him not to gamble, lend money, or consort with women during the trip, all of which the young man chooses to ignore. The Alien Corn tells the story of a young man (George Bland) who wishes to become a pianist. His parents agree to let him study for two years before his progress is judged by a third-party. The Kite revolves around a man (George Cole) who enjoys flying kites as a hobby, much to his wife's (Hermione Baddeley) disapproval. She decides to destroy his favorite kite, which puts their relationship in a very precarious position. The Colonel's Lady is centered on the wife (Nora Swinburne) of a colonel (Cecil Parker) who writes a book of poetry about a middle-aged woman having an affair with a younger man, which leads the colonel to doubt her faithfulness.moreless
