From Amazon.co.uk

Truly Madly Deeply is an intelligent, moving, and deeply funny story about love and death. Nina (Juliet Stevenson), a scatterbrained professional translator, has lost the love of her life, Jamie (Alan Rickman). As her life (and her flat) slowly falls to pieces, she is inundated with an endless stream of repairmen and eligible suitors. But rather than go on with life, Nina dwells on her dead love, slumped at her piano, endlessly playing half of a Bach duet. Then, in a truly magical sequence, his cello suddenly joins her melody... and Jamie's back from the dead. At first it's bliss--think of the superficially similar blockbuster Ghost, only with real people instead of pretty faces Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze. But Nina gradually realises it's a thoroughly real Jamie who's back; complete with every annoying, argumentative fault she'd conveniently forgotten. (He might be dead, he explains, but he still attends political meetings.) Moreover, he has to hide whenever any of the living are around. And he's constantly ice-cold. And he invites his dead pals to her place at all hours. What's a living woman to do? Director Anthony Minghella went on to create the melodramatic period piece The English Patient--but in this film, he shows a far more sensitive, subtle touch. The photography is brilliant, capturing the simple beauties of suburban London. And the wonderfully acted characters, quirky and all too real, will keep you laughing--and always guessing what will happen next.--Grant Balfour, Amazon.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you want me to go? 8 April 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Nina's {Juliet Stevenson} life is torn apart with the unexpected death of her lover, Jamie {Alan Rickman}. Stuck in a rat infested flat and under expensive therapy, Nina's grief is suddenly stopped in its tracks when Jamie comes back into her life as a ghost. Just as Nina meets Mark, a potential suitor.

For his first feature film, director and writer Anthony Minghella chose this touching, and often funny, tale of bereavement and learning to love again. Written in the main for Stevenson to showcase her talents, its strengths lie in the actors performances, the sensitive writing and its low key moody production ethic. Often it's been tagged the British answer to the Moore/Swayze movie Ghost. That's a lazy link and a touch misleading, as this is, if anything, the anti blockbuster movie, while the respective plots bear little resemblance. And besides which, this was made quite some time before Patrick and Demi were playing slinky round the pottery wheel.

Stevenson is marvellous, she gives Nina real depth, and in one grief stricken scene she delivers one of the most believable enactments of that emotion ever put on to celluloid. Rickman shines as he gets his teeth into something outside of the bad guy roles he was {still is} known for. Watch out for a poem (La Muerta) segment shared between the two, pure class. And as Mark, Michael Maloney is hugely effective in what is the tricky third wheel role. While the impressive acting on show is boosted by Barrington Pheloung's poignant, rhythmic musical score.

There are a number of interpretations put forward as to what Truly, Madly, Deeply is about. But really it has to be down to the individual viewer to make their own deductions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A HAUNTING AND DEEPLY MOVING FILM... 2 Jan 2003
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
Anthony Minghella, in his directorial debut, has produced a superlative film about life, love, death, and grief. It is a genre bending film that is a romantic fantasy with both comedic and dramatic layers. Original and unusual, it is at times drolly funny. At other times, it is profoundly sad and poignant.
The plot revolves around Nina (Juliet Stevenson), a thirty-something English woman who has lost Jamie (Alan Rickman), the love of her life, to a totally unexpected death. She is profoundly in despair and her grief is bottomless, piercing, palpable, and all encompassing. Living in a rat infested flat, Nina seems unable to cope with life without her Jamie, for whom she incessantly longs. When it seems that she can no longer bear the pain of his loss, he suddenly comes back from the dead, no figment of her imagination.
Initially overjoyed, transformed by her sheer happiness at having Jamie back, she becomes her old self. Of course, it is too good to be true. He starts having all his dead friends crash at the flat with him, invading her space and privacy, redoing her flat, and complaining. Those little annoying things about Jamie that she had forgotten come bubbling to the surface. Having romanticized their relationship in her overwhelming sense of loss, this reminder of how he really was helps to ground her grief.
When she meets a sensitive and attractive man, Mark (Michael Maloney), who is attracted to her, she finds herself torn between the memories of her love for her dead Jamie and the possiblity of love with the very much alive Mark. Nina has a decision to make that will determine her future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bias: I love Rickman 8 Jun 2011
By Megan
Format:DVD
Truly, Madly, Deeply was a spur of the moment buy for me, i had hardly heard of it and honestly, from the plot description, I wasn't expecting much, but seeing that i adore Rickman and the majority of his films - i thought i'd give this a go. This is a sensitive and moving film, filled with romance, death and further truly emotive themes. Juliet Stevenson plays her role as Nina fantastically, and as for Alan Rickman - his performance is flawless, probably only scarred by the fact that a gang of ghosts join in with him. A great buy, i would recommend to anyone! My only real problem (I can live with the gang of film loving ghosts) is that Rickman's character is called 'Jamie' - doesn't really suit him?...

5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated gem 15 Feb 2002
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this film on 2 different levels. Firstly, it's a fabulous story of the effect of bereavement on a partner/spouse; the huge spectrum of emotions; the impact on everyday life and the simultaneous desire and resistance to moving on from grief. Nina is portrayed superbly by Juliet Stephenson. She has amazing strength of character yet also combines this with an appealing sense of vulnerability. She's working, trying to make a "terrible flat" into a secure home for herself, still being friendly, helpful, caring - while all the time, her emotional pain is so tangible.
Alan Rickman is her dead partner Jamie - who comes back to her in his ethereal form. He is absolutely stunning and brings his inimitable dry humour to the context of being dead. Beneath the story, though, you can read into a lot of metaphorical stuff - cleverly done. The ending is both heartening yet crucifying, emotionally. It never fails to make me cry, but in a healthy, cathartic sense. Life can and does go on if only you can allow yourself to try. It's more down to earth than "Ghost" and more real, somehow. If you enjoyed the book "What dreams may come" (NOT THE FILM),I think you'll enjoy this and vice versa. Alan Rickman acts his best ever role, in my opinion. Just make sure you've got plenty of tissues handy!!

I can tell by the purple disk that it is fake, when we went to play with it, it was terrible quality. It kept skipping, it was out of sync, completely unwatchable.
