5.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously decadent wartime drama
The Camomile Lawn is a production bursting with delicious characters superbly portrayed by a quality cast. The "action" is split between the early years of World War 2 and the "present": 1980's/1990, telling a number of individual but interlinked stories that are by turns touching, shocking and humorous. The lovely Jennifer Ehle as the promiscuous and self seeking...

3.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscent randy relationships of relatives and friends
The story starts out with people going to Max's (Oliver Cotton) funeral 40 years after WWII. On the way to the funeral each person, several generations of family and friends reminisce on their earlier war years where five cousins gathered at their uncles' house with a chamomile lawn.

The costumes and sets were impeccable and carried you to a different world and...

A really lovely story, which links the generations of the family within it, a must to see how the life intermingles with the cousins, funny, sad, and dramatic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camomile Lawn Review, 23 Aug. 2009

This review is from: The Camomile Lawn [DVD] (DVD)
I purchased this DVD to replace an old video which had got chewed up.
I first saw this series on Channel 4, and loved it. The series follows a "family" through the war, catching up with them some years later at a funeral.
It covers the lost innocence of youth and implications of war from a middle class perspective, which could be seen as slightly out of date now.
It launched the careers of Jennifer Ehle who went on to become Elizabeth Bennet in the BBC series Pride and Prejudice, and Tara Fitzgerald, who has been in many films and TV series, showing her talent as an all round actress.
Felicity Kendal plays a no-nonsense wife to Paul Eddington's fussy husband, and they work very well together.
Highly commended.
