WonderfulBy a customer from northern ireland , 02 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Queen Victoria is just such a wonderful monarch and certainly the most popular of the entire royal line. This two DVD set tells the story of the life she endured as a teenager and her troubles with her mother. Her attempts to find a suitor and the constant battling between families of that Victorian dynasty.
The acting is very good and there are some interesting performances from Diana Rigg and Patrick Malahide, although the show is stolen by the central characters playing Victoria and Albert.
This was an intensely moving film and even though it is essentially a documentary, one wonders what exactly Queen Victoria would have thought about it had she been alive today. The music by Alan Parker is needless to say, enchanting. A true masterpiece and not to be missed.

Fairly entertaining filmBy realworld (25 reviews) from herts , 21 Sep 2010This saga of Victoria and Albert could have been improved if it were more realistic and factual.
However, it is interesting and easy to watch.

Very enjoyableBy a customer from London , 21 Dec 2009I believe this is very accurate account of the story, besides the quality of the performances is really great and immensely enjoyable. I had just one great surprise - how is possible, that on the ball prior Victoria and Albert wedding, which happen 1840, is orchestra playing to dance suite from Johann Strauss's jr. (who, being born in 1825, was at that time 15 years old) operetta Die Fledermaus, which opened at 1874...???
okBy Rosie1 (1 review) from Morecambe , 22 Jul 2009Disc one is a little slow it would be much better if you could have both discs at the same time although disc two does remind you of what happened in the last disc. I would recommend it only if you dont mind waiting for the next disc to arrive
