Poliakoff's masterpiece, 10 Nov. 2007
Anyone who has a soul will find this film to be one of the most brilliant pieces of TV drama ever filmed. It is like entering a dreamworld, from which you awaken enlightened, provoked, and profoundly moved. Damien Lewis is extraordinary, as is the actress who plays Lizzie. The story will resonate with anyone who lived through the last 3 decades. The score, by Adrian Johnston, is achingly beautiful, and stays with you long after the film has ended. But the true genius here is Stephen Poliakoff, from whose remarkable imagination this amazing story came to life.
