Anthropology’s relationship with colonialism has been discussed widely. Yet the ethnography of the colonial service remains largely unexplored on film. This entertaining documentary shows, not without human sympathy towards the main character, how after 40 years in the tropics, Colonel Hilary Hook returns from the Kenyan highlands to a London suburb.
