A Lovely Feel-good film for the laydeesBy a customer from INVERNESS , 28 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Saw this with 3 girlfriends - we all enjoyed it. It was just a nice film with humour, brilliant performances as usual by all the cast. Not for men who like fast moving action adventures. One to watch on a wet Saturday night with your mum but well worth it!

Extraordinary acting by Judi Dench - againBy StoryeBook (31 reviews) , 10 Dec 2013Judi Dench was 74 when she starred in this. Yet in this film she is able with no visible effort to turn her old-spinster character into a young girl falling in love for the first time - and so convincingly, it's heartbreaking and beautiful. I remember Dench in her earliest BBC dramas in the 1960s - sci-fi, romance, new ideas. These dramas are never mentioned today, but you always knew it would be a fascinating drama to wake up your mind if it had Dench in it. And the same goes for this film. The great Maggie Smith will always be extraordinary, but it's the modest Dench who has the magic.
Daniel Bruhl, hubba hubba.By queenfonzy (2 reviews) , 10 Aug 2013I usually hate soppy English stuff like this but 'charming' is the only way to describe this film! Lovely relationships, gentle and great violin music too. Considering I only watched this film to see Daniel Bruhl in something else after his performance as Nazi sniper in 'Inglourious Basterds' (obviously Tarantino is a little different than this!) I was really surprised at how enjoyable this was. Give it a go, don't be cynical, just enjoy :)
Sunday afternoon filmBy a customer , 21 Aug 2012Very good and interesting. Love Judy Dench excellent actress. Easy film to watch and acting very good. Quite quaint too.
Lovely film although sad and wistfulBy a customer , 29 Jul 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideExcellent casting in Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, no-one else could have played these parts better. The pace was just right, there was a little gentle humour here and there, the shipwrecked young man got his big break and life then went on for the two sisters as it had before. That was rather sad. Maggie Smith's character had had some kind of satisfaction from life in earlier days but for some reason never fully explained Judi Dench's character had missed out, possibly due to WW1, and was tempted to relive her youth through this young man. Such a setup could have been tacky but it wasn't, just rather sad.
