5.0 out of 5 stars Lace 7 Nov 2012
By MD
Verified Purchase
We saw this when it first came on TV in the 80s and thoroughly enjoyed it. Forgot all about it until quite recently, then saw that a DVD was now available. Although of course we remembered the gist of the story, neither my wife nor I could remember which one of the three was the mother. That meant it was almost like watching it for the first time and we enjoyed the build up of suspense until the revelation right at the end. A really good story. If you've never thought about watching this, if you liked 'Kane and Abel' (another 80s story), you'll like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia 20 Jan 2013
By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
This is part one of the miniseries where Lily goes in search of her mother. Through flash backs we see the lives of the four friends, who 'through thick and thin' developed a bond of friendship while in a boarding school, until one particular event sowed a discord amongst them. One of them is Lily's mother but all four claim to be the mother such was their friendship and bond- 'through thick and thin'.
A great series with so many fine actors. The DVD is a region 2 import with a running time of 240 minutes.
This is a very poignant movie on communication,friendship and making choices. We reap what we sow, so inevitably we are confronted by our choices and secrets and have to take responsibility for them. Thanks to the advent of DVD we can experience this drama again, one of the best miniseries of the eighties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a punt folks, you won't be disappointed... 11 Mar 2011
Surely one of the best - if not THE best - miniseries of the 1980's, when book-turned-miniseries were all the rage!

Based loosely on the Shirley Conran bestseller of the same name, the story is that of `Lili' a world famous porn-cum-film star who, after a miserably life at the end of WW2, seeks revenge on the mother, whom she feels abandoned her as a child to foster parents in the wilds of Switzerland. Unfortunately, she doesn't actually know who her mother is but narrows it down to three women who all attended the same select Swish boarding school. So, with this knowledge in hand, she heads off to find and cause havoc on each, before gathering them all together one evening to declare - `which one of you bitches it my mother?'. Great stuff. Honestly!!

An amazing cast, including Angela Lansbury (in a `guest star' capacity, who scene steals at every opportunity) plus some terrific cinematography at the end as, after the confrontation, a pair of black-heeled pumps are tracked up the stairs and landing back to Lili's penthouse suite... a shadow opens the door and as Lili looks mournfully from the balcony, her mother finally emerges! There are clues to who she is, but you're never quite sure, until she is revealed at the end.

Seriously, this is a great and now classic miniseries and I cannot recommend more highly. To complete the saga you can also get (the less engaging) Lace 2, where Lili searches for her father.

Take a punt folks, you won't be disappointed...

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 21 Feb 2013
By Linda
Verified Purchase
lace is highly recommended,read the book and thought the tv series couldnt be as good but really enjoyed that too,was great to see the characters you had read about come to life so to speak and pheobe cates is so good at the part of lilli,you would think having been first televised in the late 80s-it would be quite dated now but not the case,i watch it over and over and although i obviously know who the mother is,it doesnt ruin it for me,you will have to follow it up with lace 2,lilli's father this time-not quite as good as the original but still very entertaining and again,keeps you guessing to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as fabulous as i remember it to be! 4 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
I remember these series form the 80's. I loved the majority of them, but this was the first one i decided to buy.

It brought back many memories. It was as enthralling as i remember it to be. Though i did not remember June Brown (Dot Cotton) being in it. I won't give the plot away, but unfortunately, half way through;, i remembered the ending. This did not spoil it for me completely. It's a top notch drama in my view. Very gripping!!

Next for me will be Lace II, then maybe Woman Of Substance!!

Enjoy!!

Even after so many years the story is still fresh. I think it is a sample of how something can be kept within the limits of good taste considering the subject. Read more
