Although it has been shown on TV a few times over the years this release through the BFI is the first time Mulberry Bush has been readily available in any format since its original cinema release back in January 1968. And if only all DVD releases were this good!

Whatever the merits of the film itself this new release is almost perfect in its presentation. You get a DVD version as well as a high definition fully restored Blu-ray disc, with both discs containing plenty of bonus material. Also included is a superb 34 page booklet with an abundance of information, film facts and illustrations. This edition is obviously produced by a team who love film for an audience who will enjoy it as much.

The film is what it is - a reflection of life in the late sixties in many respects; picture Christopher Timothy in the basket of a delivery boy's bicycle - in Stevenage - and you are half way there! This release features the full unedited version of the film - unlike the TV showings - with Judy Gleeson's nude lake scene featured complete. Although the soundtrack is credited to Spencer Davis and Traffic the music accompanying that scene is actually "It's Been a Long Time" by former John's Children singer Andy Ellison.

It is worth reading the Wikipedia articles on the film itself and that of lead actor Barry Evans to set the scene if you are considering buying this film, and also read Amazon's Product Description, but the booklet supplied with the discs contains much more information.

This is the first disc in the BFIs Flipside series which "rescues weird and wonderful British films from obscurity" that I have bought. From the quality of this release I shall be checking out the rest of the range before long. Mulberry Bush is a cult classic which I enjoyed very much - not everyone's cup of tea though! However, I must give this BFI version a full five stars as it is a good example of how films should be presented for the home market.

For anyone who has seen this film before, or loves this phsycadelic period - it's a must. An excellent re-mastered digital FULL UN-CUT version of this iconic film. Although Barry Evans is clearly in his infancy in the film world, he executes his role admirably. The supporting cast members only add further to this production. Filmed entirely on location (mainly in Stevenage new town) the film has a very realistic charm. Perhaps it could've been a little more raunchier with the dialogue and incorporated slightly more erotic sex scenes. No doubt the censors of the time said a firm NO to a number of suggestive scenes. This is most apparent if you watch the extras and see the original censored British released version. The pace is upheld with some comic moments keeping the film jogging along.

I've been after this little gem of a movie for years. Nearly every time I visit Amazon.co.uk I've typed in the title in the search facility only to be told it was unavailable - until now!

I first saw this classic after videoing it late one night in the early nineties; it was the kind of film they ran about 3am and then I misplaced my VHS tape. At the time of me recording it, one reviewer described it as being locked into a sixties time warp. Well! GREAT! If there was an era I could go back to and live it would be 1967/1968 when this film was shot.

It is very pyschedelic. We have regular interludes of musical and pictorial psychedelia with the aid of bands like Steve Winwood's Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group. The official soundtrack has been available for years and the title track was released into the UK top ten at the time.

Young Jamie McGregor (played by the now sadly deceased Barry Evans), a seventeen year old middle class grammar school youth, chases pretty girls around the new town of Stevenage as it seems that his sixteen year old brother is outdoing him in the romantic stakes. He is cheerful and cheeky and talks a lot to the camera about his class-consciousness and insecurities. Not everything goes to plan, but he rarely lets it get him down. He chases after the posh bird, Caroline (Angela Scoular) and the council estate girl, Linda (Adrienne Posta), but the one he really wants is the elusive Mary (Judy Geeson). However, it soon transpires that just like him, she likes playing the field, which he has difficulty handling.

I have to say that the picture quality presented here is as good as it could be after more than 45 years and that the double Blu-Ray/DVD package is an excellent compilation with decent extras. I particularly enjoyed the documentary about Stevenage.

I remember watching this at the local cinema when I was 17 - and then feeling very embarrassed when my parents subsequently went to see it. I felt they should not be exposed to this revelation of adolescent lusts. They pointed out that they had also been teenagers once - a possibility that seemed remote to me at the time! It is a wonderful film to see again - capturing so many details and nuances of late 1960s culture, the attitudes, humour, naivety, and styles of speech and language of that time. The narrative organises around the adventures of a sex-obsessed teenager as he seeks 'a nice class of girl'- seemingly taboo-breaking at the time, in its portrayal of an emerging sexual freedom, but thoroughly innocent from our present perspective. The setting is Stevenage, and an accompanying feature presents the many positive aspects of this new town.
