Reviews

Television drama based on the novel by Elizabeth Jane Howard. Author Daisy Langrish (Penelope Wilton) buys a tranquil country cottage as a bolt-hole from the pressures of her busy London life, but doesn't expect her new home to come complete with a would-be suitor. The day she moves in, local gardener Henry Kent (Michael Kitchen) is immediately on hand to help and offer his friendship, but are his intentions sinister?

"Falling." What a wonderful title! After seeing this film, "falling" brings to mind stepping up to the brink, closing your eyes, and taking a plunge--without ever looking.

For fans of Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, (played by Michael Kitchen in "Foyle's War"), this movie is a superb opportunity to see a lot more of the actor (without so many other characters murdering each other and taking precious screen time away from Kitchen, as they do in "Foyle's War"). In "Falling", Kitchen plays Henry Kent in a role that allows him to portray a much wider range of emotions than the character Christopher Foyle calls for--and to use a much broader vocabulary: I have a difficult time imaging the reticent Foyle voluntarily using the word "ravish". Henry Kent, on the other hand, proffers the word easily, guilefully.

As the film begins, Henry, seated on a train, gives us an unusual soliloquy on love and loss. The oddity of this scene is alleviated somewhat as we then watch the glib, wonderfully friendly Henry meet his prospective love, Daisy (played by Penelope Wilton with just the right touch of bewilderment). Henry charms his way into her house and soon manages to light a fire for her, as it were. But, don't expect a simple romantic story here. Time spent with Henry could never be simple or straightforward. This tale moves forward to include a full range of emotions, including some heart-pounding suspense.

Michael Kitchen gives a versatile and clever performance in which Henry Kent exudes a singular jaded charm--which seems conjured quite naturally by the actor. Kitchen's mature, handsome face and his boyish smile are a wonderful foil to the character's personality and intentions.

For Michael Kitchen fans as well as probably many other people looking for high quality British drama, this one pays off. Andrew Davies undoubtedly deserves credit for his adapted screenplay. Everybody is very good in this. I would probably even stretch my rating to 4 1/2 stars if that were technically possible.

Good packaging. Prompt service. A brilliant story, well acted by the cast. Michael Kitchen extremely funny at times. Story sticks mainly to the book which is always a plus. I would recommend it to anyone over thirty!
