PLEASE NOTE that this version of 'Falling for a Dancer' is NOT the full-length TV drama. It has been cut from over 190 minutes to 125 minutes.

I bought this version and was shocked to see that parts of it had been cut. Please be aware of this if you choose to buy this version.

Format: DVD
I fell for "Falling for a Dancer" the first time I watched it in full (pardon the pun!) - which is why I was thrilled to find a region 2 DVD at an affordable price at last. Alas, the Dutch import DVD I bought off amazon.co.uk turned out to be a seriously cropped version of the original mini-series. It should, by all rights, be entitled "Falling for a Dancer - selected scenes."
Way too many scenes are missing from this version, which results a very sketchy storyline with a lot of connections missing. The remaining scenes give a lot of characters rather short shrift.
The full version is a moving, thought-provoking and atmospheric production which I would heartily recommend to everyone. Sadly, the best parts of it (especially Lizzy's subtle and realistic character development) are missing from the import DVD. There is such a thing as reductio ad absurdum in the world of movies.

What??? I ordered this months ago but only just recently tried to watch it. Upon opening the pkg and looking more closely at the cover of the DVD that should have been my first clue. Almost all text is in a foreIgn language (Dutch? Polish? Russian?). I put the DVD in the player and 3 options came up. One in English "Play DVD" and 2 in another language. I selected the English "play" and throughout the opening credits and the beginning of the movie a man's loud voice is apparently translating what is appearing on the screen in English (text) and then when the film starts, what the actors are saying - maybe. Who knows? I don't speak his language. Very, very strange! Sort of like a "Director's commentary" - you can't hear what the actors are saying, although they are speaking English, and I found no way to turn off the crazy man. So... worthless purchase - could not watch.

I love this DVD and it is definitely my most watched drama. I hold it on a pedestal along with the BBC "Pride and Prejudice" drama. My teenage daughters were even won over by the series despite listening to me drone on about it for a few years before they watched it! And that was no mean feat!

I have posted a short review of the novel on this site, but actually it was the DVD that I watched first and this inspired me to read the book. I actually prefer the slight alteration to the story as featured on the DVD (with author approval). I cannot recommend the DVD or book enough.
