It’s a movie-as-walking tour, a fanciful detour through Michael Powell’s hometown of Kent, England. . . . What starts as a rotating gallery of rural eccentrics, an offbeat “Why We Fight” homeland confidence booster, accumulates into something of inchoate power as our guide’s accidental tour of Kent turns into an existential quest, a “why we exist” spiritual journey.
