Stephen Fry- the secret life of a manic depressiveBy simes (239 reviews) from near Gloucester , 02 Jul 2012This was actually a very interesting DVD it gives you an insight into what poor Stephen Fry has had to battle with.
I met a lady who was Bipolar in France (she was South African not French), and she described to me how her life had changed dramatically.
You may not like Stephen Fry but I reccomend you watch this one.
Well worth a watchBy a customer , 26 Mar 2012A well presented documentary a must for Fry fans. Very Insightful and informative. I especially enjoyed the Robbie Williams section.
If you are keen to learn more about the mind or mental illness and depression: this will interest youBy lele_poco (46 reviews) from Croydon , 10 Nov 2011Really insightful. make sure you watch both parts as I nearly overlooked part 2 on the dvd.
I have so much more appreciation for Stephen Fry after this film and regard him as a real British icon. The way he talks so sincerely about his struggle with those 'dark days' and his past being expelled from school through destructive behavior.
I came away with positive feelings and inspired by Fry himself. what an endearing man he is!
I would highly recommend this titleBy Nettie27 (13 reviews) , 10 Nov 2011I wanted to watch this as I am a fan of Stephen Fry and knew that he had struggled with depression in the past. This film shows you to what extent he has suffered and how it has affected his life and is still affecting him.
It was also interesting to see how people from all walks of life are affected by it but for some reason we are really only just beginning to accept depression as an illness which is extremely common. I felt that the film dealt with things in a very positive way and was not depressing to watch at all.
Stephen Fry was perfect in the role of presenter. I was slightly shocked at the way people have struggled with depression for years and yet even those closest to them sometimes are not aware of it. I would recommend this film as it will give people a greater understanding of the illness.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!By Kayakingkat (3 reviews) from Gillingham, Kent. , 11 Sep 2011Definitely worth watching, especially for those suffering from any sort of anxiety or depression. Stephen Fry shares personal experiences from throughout his life and takes part in the world's largest study of bipolar/manic depression. He also talks to other sufferers about their personal experiences. This two part documentary helped me to put some of my own experiences into perspective. Thank you, Stephen, for sharing your secret life with us.
