I too have been waiting and waiting for this to become availale on DVD. Although the direction is slightly odd, it's a wonderful, focussed study with a terrific cast - Jodhi May, Philip Glenister, Steven Mackintosh. Much closer to the book than the recent Hollywood version, which I saw and which was absolutely dire. I really need to see this now, to wipe the other from my memory! I'm really looking forward to getting it.
