5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value., 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection - Volume 10 [DVD] (DVD)
An extraordinarily varied selection from which one film stands out, namely "The Divided Heart".

The film opens innocently enough with a young boy (Toni) of ten years out on the hill slopes (mountain backdrop, we are not quite sure where exactly) in winter snows enjoying skiing, something at which he has become quite skilled. The idyll is soon to be shattered by the brief visitation of two officials who make known to the adoptive German parents of the boy that his blood mother (a Yugoslav refugee) has been located and that she wishes to have the boy back with her.

The procedure by which the boy's future is to be determined by a panel of three dedicated judges from the American Control Commission
proceeds by a series of harrowing flashbacks set in the period of the Second World War, and at various locations.

One's sympathies are in a constant state of tension and flux as we sympathise with both parties and with the boy at the fulcrum of all this upheaval and uncertainty. The primary objective is to secure a humane settlement for the boy but as with much of life there would appear to be no simple or single solution that excludes pain.

The film achieves its mission without recourse to an audio backdrop. Outstanding in every regard.

The other three films all have something to offer the serious viewer, and in the case of "His Excellency", we have another film that poses a series of moral questions, though with a lighter touch than the film above.

Outstanding value.

Great moments of nostalgia of the Ealing days with some films much superior in quality than others. But they show the range of work the studio was producing at the time and give a good clue as to the audiences they were aiming at. Very interesting to watch though i guess most would only view the films once.
