The test of time - passed with flying colours,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brideshead Revisited - Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
When Brideshead Revisited was first shown in the '80s it was compulsory viewing. It was watched, enjoyed and discussed by millions. Beautifully produced, with fabulous performances from all it's main actors particularly the extraordinary Sir Laurence Olivier. He doesn't feature much except perhaps in the last episode but what an actor.
There is a feature film being made and soon to hit the cinemas starring Emma Thompson and Michael Gambon - all I can say to them is good luck because the original TV series will be a tough nut to crack. It stands the test of time and the detail and atmosphere that is yours across 11 episodes will be almost impossible for a 2 hour feature film to match. Age has not withered this version, it's a treat and worth every penny.
