What more could you ask for in a movie?By scramblingman from herts , 28 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]A gentle comedy that doesn't thrust the race issue down your throat, although the intergration of black Caribbean's into white London is one of the central issues of the movie.
The other issue is CRICKET!! What more could you ask for in a movie? I left the movie wanting to see more of the characters,and you can easily see this as a TV series. Also the music is excellent as well.

CharmingBy a customer from Surrey , 06 Dec 2011Totally charming film about racial issues (Jews & Negroes) with cricket the common bind, in early 60's Britain. Humourous, touching and emotional. Given it 5 stars because I enjoyed it so much despite slightly ropey acting by the boy who played David (the young black girl was so much more rounded and fluent) and the dubious casting of Emily Woof as David's young mother which some how did not quite gel.
ExcellentBy Dot2 (165 reviews) from Leicestershire , 08 Aug 2011A lovely film which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Those whio did not rate this film do not have a sentimental bone in their body.
magicalBy a customer from Guiseley, Leeds , 23 Dec 2008set in london in the very early 1960's it goes to show how the great game of cricket can bring down the barriers of different races and religion
Wondrous OblivionBy a customer from Stourbridge , 21 Oct 2008Good gentle comedy with a message.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I have never seen a better sporting film than Wounderous Oblivion.I have found that it touched on a whole range of emotions.We found this film looking for a good cricket themed film, as I love the game. We found the exact match. This underrated gem of a film covers an uNdercurrent of issues as previous reviewers have mentioned. As an eleven year old I was totally absorbed and I recommend this film, even going to buy it!
