A golden OldyBy Michael Sowa from London , 11 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]When I ordered this film I thought it was a relatively new release..! I was shocked when I put it on I found it was quite an old classic movie. I nearly turned it off (How Shallow!), but decided to watch it. It turned out to be a good decision..The film was very engrossing and brilliantly acted. The film is centered around a black american family struggling to survive. A large family living in a two bedroom flat. Some money is coming their way and each of the family members has their own aspirations of what could be possible. I found this a very morally warming film and am now seeking out other old classics..! I strongly recommend this film..!

DAYS GONE BY MOVIE SEE ITBy Robertlovefilms (7 reviews) , 31 Jan 2012I Have waited a long time to see this movie and was not dissappointed. A strong cast with Sidney and Ruby Dee with strong performance from characters .
The sister character may be just a bit too unbelievable but why shouldn't the young be wishfull wild and free spirited.
Filmed in black and white only added to the moving and emotional scenes reminding you of the time the movie was made during the 60s with people living in crowded accommodation and a time when black people struggled to make a living.
Side characters have to be seen to be believed but they detract nothing from the movie.
All told a beautiful and dignified film nicely paced belonging to an era of days gone by.
Raisin in the sunBy a customer from Biggar , 12 Aug 2008Good performance from the whole cast and a strong Hollywood film touching quite well on issues of the time without going the whole distance. Very enjoyable.
A good filmBy Pinkmat (205 reviews) from Exeter , 30 Jun 2007This film had a powerful cast who gave some good performances. The first half went at a cracking pace. Being mostly filmed in a small apartment it was claustrophobic but deliberately so and you could see that it came from a stage play. No harm in that. Sidney Poitier was both beautiful and infuriating but the film changed pace with him and his sister slightly overacting some antics which didn't fit. The mother was magnificent. The ending is touching and gives a strong message to us white folks.
Top marks!By a customer from London , 24 May 2006Absolutely brilliant movie, I was moved. The storyline and message within it are inspriational to me. Must Buy Movie.
Enlightening dramaBy a customer from London, England , 25 Jun 2005A thought-provoking and watchable movie ... but hardly action/adventure.
