I sometimes wonder if Americans get this part of the film, because basically all the Swans in England belong to the Queen and it’s against the law to kill one, and because they’re Police Officers, they obviously can’t break the law so they save the Swan
I am an american and I had no idea thank
That part of the movie makes 90% more sense.
Okay, now the movie makes more sense, but the fact that the queen owns every swan in England make no fucking sense at all.
"Traditionally, the British Monarch retains the right to ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, but only exercises ownership on certain stretches of the River Thames and its surrounding tributaries.”
Well it’s kinda true, and that’s true enough for me. :)
