5.0 out of 5 stars The Peter Kosminsky Collection, 22 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Peter Kosminsky Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This collection of work is intelligent drama about serious contemporay events. Two of the stories are fiction and one is based on fact. In each story the main characters are British subjects and that is pivotal to understanding the context in each story that plays out - be that political, historical or religious. These films are compelling and disturbing to watch. They are not light entertainment. They are intended to make us think and reflect upon these events. There is a sense of failure pervading each story. That is not a good feeling but sadly there is no sense of hope. Truth, lies, alienation, dispossession, war, belonging, relationships, suicide are some of the reasons to be found for explaining the events that unfold in each story. The acting is great in all cases and I found the various commentaries and interviews in the extra features very helpful. There is a great deal more that could be said about this collection of work as it could be discussed on various levels and not, no doubt, without controversy or accusations of bias by some. I was deeply moved by the films and in particular on a personal level The Promise where the young British girl is able to fulfil the task her dying grandfather was unable to complete
during his military service in Palestine in 1947.
