Richard Warwick and Joanna Lumley star in this sexy, exuberant social satire charting the travails of an angry young man reacting against his environment. Adapting his bestselling novel, director Andrew Sinclair draws on his own youthful experiences: The Breaking Of Bumbo is a time-capsule portrait of military rigour competing with the era's burgeoning sexual and social freedoms, set against explosive scenes of Swinging-Sixties London.
