LINDSAY Anderson's If has become one of those cult movies over the years.

It was certainly a daring project at the time when he took life at a public school and turned it into a story of youth revolution.

Perhaps it was a story of its time: the late 1960s when we there had already been student riots in Paris and the coming-of-age of a new generation.

Anderson captured an era in a complex weaving of stories which led to a dramatic ending.

Perhaps now is the time to understand the meaning behind If.
