This was Robert Hamer's masterpiece...

Robert Hamer's 1949 film is often cited as the definitive black, eccentric British comedy, yet it's several cuts better than practically anything else in the genre.

Technically brilliant and savagely funny, serial killing has never looked so much fun.

September 27, 2002

Despite its murders and intrigues, its betrayals and blood feuds, Kind Hearts and Coronets has a dry and detached air.

London Evening Standard

August 19, 2011

Amazingly courageous for its day (1949) in combining bad taste with good comedy.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

December 20, 2014

A high comedy that is enlivened with cynicism, loaded with dramatic irony and shot through with a suspicion of social satire.

Time Out

August 17, 2011

At once a witty comedy of manners, a grotesque serial-killer caper and an acerbic satire on the class system.

It's a brilliantly cynical film without a hint of middle-class guilt or bitterness.

Hamer had a particular liking for the late-Victorian/Edwardian world and was a great Francophile.

Translation to a screen comedy has been effected with a mature wit.

The Skinny

September 01, 2011

Shot through with pitch black humour and biting satire on both the moribund upper class and the grasping venality of the suburban middle class.

New York Times

May 20, 2003

The sly and adroit Mr. Guinness plays eight Edwardian fuddy-duds with such devastating wit and variety that he naturally dominates the film.
