Listen to the critics, not the public!By Steve H from Manchester, England , 15 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]The critics loved this film and the puclic hated it. It's easy to understand why if you read some of the reviews by the professionals. They described it as very funny, sophisticated, clever etc etc and to be honest this film is a little over the head of Joe Public who went to see it expecting laugh-a-minute jokes and obvious humour. This is an incredibly subtle film and the humour isn't the sort that will appeal to the mass market. It comes almost as much from what is not said as what the stars actually say. The detail of the film and the quality of the acting is top notch and I can't recommend this film highly enough to a cultured viewer.

Modern MasterpieceBy vidmon (59 reviews) , 26 Jan 2012This is a brilliant piece of entertainment, with an eclectic British cast and some of Hollywood's recognised faces. The setting is authentic, the acting is parlous, the direction by Robert Altman on the spot.
A modern masterpiece, but that's just my opinion.
Totally believable upstairs downstairs !By a customer , 15 Oct 2011I really enjoyed this Film and would watch it again!
There were so many Characters, that it was a little hard to follow. But well worth concentrating on as the subtle humour is exquisite.
The stellar cast does not disappointBy BampaOwl (5 reviews) from Dunblane , 27 Aug 2011My only real criticism is that I had difficulty following who was who, especially among the 'toffs'. It needed an introduction with pictures, names and a family tree! But an excellently made and acted film which left us with something to think about.
A great British endeavourBy a customer from Dorset , 28 Feb 2011The first time I saw this film I was actually a little disappointed. I was expecting more of an
'Agatha Christie' type whodunnit mystery.
However having seen it for the second showing, this time round, I really enjoyed it! I took more notice of the characters as I already knew the outcome. It made a lot more sense.
The actors were wonderful and such a lot of talent on display. Everyone was well cast and the period of history was so beautifully captured. The attention to detail was immaculate.
Great filmBy Steve Hatton from Cornwall, UK , 11 Nov 2010The actors are like a who's who of class - and it shows. The story is a bit obvious and the direction a little slow at times, but overall the film is a masterpiece of period drama. Its a must watch.
