5.0 out of 5 stars Toot-Toot! Hooray For Mr Toad!
This must be the finest production of "Wind in the Willows" ever likely to be made. Perfect casting, the clever decision not to hide the actors behind animal masks, and a witty script make it ideal viewing for the whole family - as the BBC knew when it proved central to their Christmas schedule in 2006.

Matt Lucas is a delight as Toad - bombastic, sly,...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Funny, Witty by all involved., 16 July 2014

This review is from: Kenneth Grahame's The Wind In The Willows (Standard Edition) [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
A lot has already been written about this production extolling its virtues. And so it is.

I did wonder how using actors, with the barest amount of makeup, would transcend a story about animals at its core. But it does, and through the skill of the actors themselves, whom one can identify with the animal they replace just by the little gestures they use from time to time, I found it a completely enthralling viewing experience. A tour de force by all involved. A must for anyone who has enjoyed, or wishes to discover, Kenneth Grahame's masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Adaptation, 25 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the live action adaptation that was shown on the BBC a few years ago. The locations are beautiful, costumes fantastic and there's a brilliant cast, especially Matt Lucas who is very funny and quite endearing as the pompous Mr Toad! The locations are beautifully shot, with the English countryside drenched in sun, it's an all round lovely version. Kids and adults will both love this for it's timeless story and it has an air of nostalgia for times more innocent. The beauty of this boxset is the combination of both DVD and book, every viewing makes me re-read the book! I highly recommend this version.

This DVD was supposed to be in very good condition. In fact it would not play at all and I have thrown it away. I think people should tell the truth about the condition their item is in and not lie. Very disappointed!
