Brian and Charles

After a serious depression, Brian decides to make a friend to stave offhis loneliness. He builds Charles, a towering robot made from odds and ends, a being who’s clumsy but endearing. The village scrap-metal dealer sets his sights on Charles, and Brian will have to fight to keep him.
A story of frustrated friendship in a film that teeters on sci-fi, Brian and Charles was an award-winning short, before being made into the quintessential British feature, a masterclass in gentle mockery. British cinema remains faithful to it singular penchant for turning sadness into thundering humour.
