Most helpful review
worth watchingBy a customer from horley , 01 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I enjoyed this, if somewhat predictable, film. Anna Friel appears to thrive in this type of role. I think they glam'ed up the Land Girls part played during the war, the film on the whole was good if a somewhat depressing end.

Typical Brit flickBy MichaelKenward (30 reviews) from Staplefield, Sussex , 20 Jan 2010Three young women from different classes are thrown together on what at first sight looks like the Dorset equivalent of Cold Comfort Farm.
Then there is the usual mixture of romance, tragedy and light relief. No real surprises, except the absence of the Americans who usually win the war and get the film shown in the USA.
Plenty of period detail. (For once the choo choo trains don't seem to have been on the Bluebell line.)
Lazy 'after the war' closing scene. Information free extras.
Apart from that, light relief of an unchallenging kind.
A Little SlowBy Crookshanks (327 reviews) from Newport, Shropshire , 04 Dec 2009This film was a little slow and took a few attempts at watching to the end. However,it was a nice film with some great acting from the three lead girls and gave you an insight into how life was during the second world war. The ending was somewhat depressing, shame as I was expecting a happy ending. Although this film was ok I can't help but think that the recent BBC adaptation was far superior with a lot more wit and humour and deffinately more engaging. One for a Sunday afternoon I think!
watchableBy a customer from england , 24 Jun 2009this was ok. Didn't fully tell how land girls got on in ww2. Girls in the film spent most of the time rolling in the hay, and didn't do very much work, whereas the real land girls did.
This film was just 'entertainment'
Quite GoodBy a customer from Cheshire England , 06 Feb 2008The Land Girls depicted the war years well, when young women chose to work on the land as Land Girls rather than go into nursing, muniician factories or any other 'reserved occupation'. Joining the Land Army inevitably brought together girls from different backgrounds and temperament. This was demonstrated in this film, the girls having to learn to live and tolerate each other, not to mention the sceptical famer and his randy son. The story line was somewhat predictable but never the less enjoyable .
Great film... dreadful endingBy a customer from in a grump , 15 Mar 2006Why ruin this brilliant film: great acting, fantastic scenery, evocative etc etc, with the totally naff ending. It made me so cross as it's nothing like the book, yet the rest was mostly very faithful. Grrrr.
