5.0 out of 5 stars Every sailor will love it., 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved every episode and had to ration myself to watching one a night! When it had finished I wanted more. Tall ships are so romantic and gracious but the series didn't hide the hardships that were suffered. A wonderful collection!!

This review is from: The Impossible [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Totally believable and ghastly in the extreme. The true story of one family's incredible experience following a tsunami. How they recovered from ghastly injuries and how they found each other by surmounting impossible odds. Exciting as well as educational.

A little confronting at times as we all head towards old age and the infirmities that old age brings, but I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful nostalgia., 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I trained as a Midwife in 1965 and this is almost an exact account of the life we led whilst training in the slums of Liverpool England. We didn't train in a convent Hospital but the day to day encounters were spot on. The camaraderie and the lasting lessons learnt through caring for people living in the slums, where something that has remained with me throughout my life. So much tragedy and so much joy in such desperate circumstances. We had so much fun!!! This has brought it all back to me in graphic detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been 5 stars, 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not for the squeamish! There was a lot of gratuitous violence and sex scenes that bordered on the pornographic, all of which I thought the story could have done without. If like me though, you fast-forwarded the bits you found offensive then it is a really good yarn!! Wonderfully acted and filmed, & totally believable. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have ordered the third series. The latter half of the second series was much more watchable as they just got on with the story, and paid less attention to shocking the viewer with sadistic sex scenes and unnecessary torture and cruelty.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing., 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tree [DVD] (DVD)
This could have been an amazing movie, but sadly I think it's just O.K. Charlotte Gainsbourg is brilliant but the story is slow and sad and really I think that more could have been done with it. For me....a bit of a let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pamper yourself!!, 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My sister first brought me a pot of this luxury body cream and I simply adore it. The perfume lingers and you feel 'expensive' after applying this cream post bath or shower. Buy it for yourself or give it as a gift to someone you care about.....they will thank you for ever!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues..., 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again the world of Downton captures the heart and mind. I found myself thinking of the times and the characters long after I had finished watching this series. I hope they bring out a fourth Series as I am reluctant to let them all go!! The actors are wonderfully 'type cast' and the costumes and set designs leave no areas for criticism. We had to ration our selves to one episode a night to make it last longer!!

A gentle story that leaves you with a 'feel good' emotion. I wished it could all be true and that Middle Eastern problems could all be sorted out so amicably.
