Our Mother’s House

Our Mother's House, a film about children but not to be considered in any way a kiddie pic, is a well-made look at family life and parenthood by seven destitute moppets. Dirk Bogarde stars in an excellent performance as their long-lost legal father, who is not the total heel he seems; nor, for that matter are the kids all angels.

Julian Gloag’s novel has been adapted into a good screenplay which develops neatly the accelerated maturing of children after the death of their long-ailing mother (Annette Carell).

Latter, object of adulation, is buried in the back yard, eldest child Margaret Brooks imposing her belief on others that this will eliminate orphanage fears. To all except eldest son Louis Sheldon Williams, she conceals existence of a father, Bogarde.
