ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I HAVE EVER SEENBy a customer from London , 05 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Amy Foster - what can I say
I saw this move three months ago and I still can't stop thinking about it.
It is extremely moving!!!!!!! and well worth watching over and over again. It has a heart wrenching story and beautiful cinematography.
I have actually bought it, because I just have to have it there to watch.

Conrad à la Catherine Cookson.By Katya1 (53 reviews) , 31 Aug 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]The script for this glossy all star adaptation is about as creaky as the doctor's leather boots. Yanko. the Russian, learns to speak English from scratch, even though he was speaking in English in a Russian accent before he 'lyeaves Ryussia'. More Catherine Cookson than Joseph Conrad, and a pale slushy attempt at matching a truly good film of its ilk, such as Schlesinger's 'Far From The Madding Crowd',
Amy Foster - beautiful love storyBy a customer , 27 Aug 2013A truly beautiful love story, filmed in North Cornwall. Kept it more than a month, watched it twice, must return it now to give others a chance to see it, but loathe to give it back.
Not a bad watch...albeit a bit sad!By floydbaggins (38 reviews) from Aberystwyth , 08 May 2011Been wanting to watch this film for a while now, but only because I was working around where this was filmed in Cornwall and saw some of the sets and watched some filming (all very interesting!). Its not a 'blow you away blockbuster', and I suppose that is why it didnt really seem to be on at the cinemas for much (if any?) time. However, it is a lovely story, in a beautiful setting, albeit a bit sad, and concentrates on love and prejudice. Think its a nice kind of late rainy Sunday afternoon film to watch with a cuppa and large cream cake!
Amy FosterBy pigsnoseinn (12 reviews) from Kingsbridge , 14 Aug 2010With such a splendid cast I expected this film to be good but was very disappointed, the lead actor annoyed me and I found the plot unconvincing.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008This film is well worth watching, it is a great film, but not a classic ~ which in summary is a very sad and gritty love story.
Beautifully filmed, directed and acted.
It avoids a hollywood ending (which is rare these days), but as a result, the reality does leaves you feeling slightly hollow.
