A great DVD, closer to the original story than Mr. Depps offering with far better characters and a superb performance from Ray Winston. I first saw this on TV and had to have a copy. Highly recommended. Meat Pies may never be the same again!

Ray Winstone at his best yet again, a faultless portrayal of the Demon Barber, BUT my one crititism and the reason that I bought the dvd was the Directors Cut description. However, The Directors Cut is EXACTLY as the transmitted version and I feel cheated. so if you saw the TV edition then the Directors Cut just does not deliver, there are NO extras what so ever, but if you like Ray Winstone as I do then buy it.

Another telling of the famous story. Ray Winstone plays Sweeney Todd, a man rebuilding his life after serving a lengthly prison sentence for a crime carried out by his father (his younger brother was hanged for the same).

Now the owner of a respectable barbers, his inner demons are put to test when a Newgate Prison Gaoler comes in for a shave boasting how he mistreats children in the prison, and thus becomes Sweeney Todd's first victim. Worse follows, a short time later his father reappears demanding money on a regular basis. At this point it is easy to see Todd as a victim, as he saves the life of a local constable, gives money to the prison children and buys a pie shop for a girl he befriends.

However her regular flow of lovers soon regret their actions as they enter Todd's shop for a shave and finish up as pie fillers. His customers now disappear with alarming regularity and the Bow Street Runners are investigating.

As with all great films, time seems to fly past. Ray Winstone gives one of his greatest performances in this graphic adaptation.

Ray Winstone does another wonderful job at taking you into the life of his character. Set in 18th century London Sweeny Todd is a respected Barber, but little do the people around him know the real Mr Todd. The relationship that Todd forms with Mrs Lovett proves to be symbiotic. The constant need both Todd and Lovett rely upon, pulls them to their demise.

This is a BBC tv film and this dvd(Director's Cut)contains graphic footage not shown on the broadcast version.The dvd also has English subtitles,but has no other extras.
Winstone is a terrific actor,but his gravelly voice benefitted from the subtitles fortunately.
Its a compelling portrait of Sweeney Todd by Winstone,far more complex than the awful Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street [DVD] [2007] with Jonny Depp or Sweeney Todd - Demon Barber Of Fleet Street [1936] [DVD] with Todd Slaughter(a brilliantly hammy portrayal).
There was so much pathos in this extremely violent depiction of the London barber who slit his clients throats and used the victims bodies as meat to supply his neighbours pie shop business.
An early Hannibal Lecter perhaps?
Essie Davis plays Mrs Lovett the proprietor of the said pie shop,showing enough cleavage,innocence,guilt and horror to bring off a superb supporting performance to Winstone.
My take on this Sweeney Todd was that the ample charms of Mrs Lovett were not sufficient to give him a buzz: it was the killing of men that gave him that ultimate 'climax'.
This is an extremely well acted and directed work but not for the squeamish.

this is one of the best dramas i`ve ever seen. Ray Winstone plays the deranged serial killer with a menace reminiscent of his character in scum. The 18th century setting is perfect as the gloomy surroundings provide a great backdrop for the murderous activities going on in sweeney todd`s barber shop. The journey sweeney todd takes from a man seemingly disgruntled at the injustices in society to someone who can`t stop killing his customers is entralling but not for the faint hearted.

Was pleasantly surprised by this film and enjoyed it all the more as it is based on history. Would have awarded it 5 stars but acting could have been better. Still very worthy of watching

i love any films or books that are set centuries ago and this story is no different. i have always been interested in the legend of sweeney todd so when this came on tv i devoured it. i wasn't disappointed, ray winstone as ever is brilliant in his portrayal of the deranged sweeney todd because while we hate him for his crimes, we also feel sorry for him. This is a brilliant adaptation, sumputuously filmed and i'm glad i own a copy!watch it!!!
