5.0 out of 5 stars Camomile Lawn - a delight!, 14 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Camomile Lawn [DVD] (DVD)
This mini-TV series was an absolute delight. The scenes, plot, actors everything!

All performances were superb right from ten-year old Rebecca Hall (incredible and 'natural' actress!) to old favourites such as felicity Kendal and the cameos of Richard Johnson et al. The hints of, dare I say, 'child abuse' involving young Sophy were so delicately handled as to almost not be there at all. The overall sexual innuendo - intertwined throughout the series - was again almost not there; just a natural extended family doing what natural extended families have been doing since the beginning of time.

I caught an episode on TV some years after it was made and was entrapped from the word go but not being an avid TV-watcher missed subsequent episodes. So I tracked it down on Amazon, bought it, and now know that this is one of the most prized DVDs that I have ever purchased. The DVD quality is good, no different to as shown on TV, and worth every penny. I'll watch it and watch it and treasure it always.

This story was about Sophy. Others might disagree, but it starts with young Sophy (Rebecca Hall) and ends with older Sophy (Claire Bloom, wow!). The story follows Sophy's life. Everything else is going on around her, but it IS her life that the story is centered on. Also, I thought the twins were hillarious how they mimicked each other's every thought and word - so if you want: a brilliant story, drama, sex, humour, great acting, beautiful scenery - buy it! As I said: A Delight!
