Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Gulliver in Lilliput, shot in characteristically weird BBC style, is a delightfully acted and deliberately restrained (but not too restrained) adaptation of Lemuel Gulliver's most mesmerizing travel adventure. The plot will be familiar to anyone awake for a semester of freshman English lit: Ship's surgeon Gulliver goes overboard and washes ashore on the mythical island of Lilliput, where a cast of teensy-weensy kooks--each barely bigger than his baby toe--has tied him down as a security measure. The Lilliputians are a paranoid lot--the wildly narcissistic emperor and his self-congratulatory empress initially take Gulliver for a spy from a neighboring land with which they are warring over the proper way to crack an egg, but thrill-seeking Lelanda helps the man-mountain ingratiate himself to the bickering, bumbling royals. Flattery's the key: flinging around words like "effulgent" to describe the emperor's eyes scores him full acceptance and a following of compliment-chasers. But his shenanigan is short-lived. When the bottom drops out, Gulliver must beat it, leaving brave Lelanda behind and feeling curiously brokenhearted. The film's special effects aren't spectacular by today's standards, but the sets are inspired and the costumes great to look at. Most important, Swift's circa-1700 sense of humor translates through time and generations. For kids 8 and older, it's a jump on future homework; for those who've already done their reading, it's a light, laugh-along refresher course. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: BAFTA Awards, ...Gulliver's Travels - Gulliver in Lilliput ( Gulliver in Lilliput )

I saw this on the BBC when it first came out, then I bought the VHS. Why there is no DVD available in Britain and I have to get it with (hideable) Dutch subtitles from a dealer in the USA is a mystery, because it's one of the best things the BBC have ever done: extremely witty, beautifully acted, and with (for the time) splendid effects. It is a very free adaptation of Swift's story, and the vignettes of Lilliputian court life are hilarious.
