This is really showing the unique story of Britain and Britons. A mix of humble workers and aristocracy. It isn't over the top; it is understated yet somehow powerful.
Brits don't like to overplay things. The silence of the narrative says everything that needs to be said.
And yet: I just noticed that my foot has been beating the rhythm this whole time.
