5.0 out of 5 stars An old favourite! 25 April 2014

Don't understand why it's not available from UK. Remember watching it on BBC in the early 80s. Lovely to see it again for nostalgia's sake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as advertised! 4 Mar 2014
I cannot comment on disc quality as yet, as not yet viewed it (birthday present). However, it did arrive promptly, well packaged and with plenty e-mail notification from the seller. I have a multi-zone player, so do not anticipate problems when we come to view. Happy to use this seller again. No problems whatsoever.

I can't view this disc as it is Region 1 and only viewable in US and Canada. It is a BBC set so strange that I can't get a disc set to view in UK? I SENT AN EMAIL TO EXPLAIN THAT I WAS NOT SATISFIED AND ASKED HOW I COULD VIEW THE DISC BUT TO DATE HAVE HAD N O REPLY SO HAVE WASTED 11.99!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Brother Jonathan 18 Oct 2013

This DVD is superb with wonderful acting and the atmosphere so evocative of early 20th century Black Country life. The pace is gentle and full of dramatic tension with a heart-rending conclusion to the story.
The novel's author, Francis Brett Young, is new to me but I'm now reading a selection of his novels with great enjoyment.

A young Daniel Day-Lewis is a wonder to behold. Seeing him so young is truly a great experience for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Brother Jonathan 21 July 2013
By D. Azevedo - Published on
Verified Purchase
I saw this on TV when I was a teenager and I loved it then, it was the first production with DDL that I had seen and I thought he was fabulous, I also really liked Benedict Taylor and Barbara Kellermann - watching this again was truly lovely and I almost like DDL's performance in this better than some of his later work. There are small sections where his acting is a bit forced, but on the whole, it's really good.

With hindsight, I find the plot a bit melodramatic, but it is very much a 19th Century story, so you have to see it in the context of the period.

I'm very glad to have this DVD in my collection anyway - great to find it too, I'd been looking for it for ages...

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible performance, as usual 19 July 2013
By Lydia - Published on
Verified Purchase
Daniel Day-Lewis gives a wonderfully subtle performance in this beautifully done movie. I rated it with 4 stars only because the ending is just such a surprise and shock. That ending was impossible to love. You just are not prepared for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic BBC 28 Jun 2013
By Krandall Kraus - Published on

This series is sweet, tender, and sentimental. Lewis is at his young best here in a role that makes him a hero all 'round. There is a surprise ending. Bring a hankie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Need a Professional seller of New/Used/Vintage Media: I recommend to order HERE! 7 Oct 2013
By Ann Albrecht - Published on
Verified Purchase
Forget the clique: they delivered with lightning speed. I never even heard the thunder afterwards they were so prompt and professional! The book was in the shape as they described unlike so many booksellers that seem to miss the "flaws" of a media material. I as for honesty when describing a possible purchase and that is what I received with this company. I highly recommend!!!

As to a young Daniel Day-Lewis busting his acting chops on this drama...well, he will NOT DISAPPOINT! It's a very good but sad tale that is bloody good!
