The Good Soldier [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Jeremy Brett
The Good Soldier [DVD] DVD ~ Jeremy Brett
This was a riveting version of The Good Soldier. I know all the locations chosen, which are in the part of England I grew up in. Brett very good as Ashburnham. Oddly, Nancy Rufford, whose role I the complex relationships is vital, is not mentioned on the disc cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed, 2 Nov 2013
This is a superb adaptation of an odd, but I believe important and even outstanding novel, which I read as a young man, and have continued to admire. I still think of it as Angus Wilson's best work. the casting and general approach in this televised version could not be bettered, with Johnson and Spriggs ideal as Gerald and Inge.

An extraordinary film, though not alt all everyone's cup of tea, as I have always realised. Once seen, never forgotten, like most of Bergman's work.
