classic brit flick with a difference...,
This review is from: Sliding Doors [DVD]  (DVD)
Nice easy going well centered film & in many ways far superior to Notting Hill.
It hits all the right notes and both Gwyneth & John Hannah more than excel (especially Hannah)it was also well set up and extrememly well played.
The two different scenario's playing of each other & though the melodrame once or twice seems to take over. The film thanks to its strong cast & witty humour gets over it delivering instead a heart & story that far out weights most British films.
Class act with John Hannah really coming into his own here and a great ending! Yes its a romance but definetly with a difference and a great film to look at time and again. How I missed this the first time I never know, it deserved to be a hit and was and pretty much still is.
Great all round film with the two main leads playing constant tug of war for merit with them both winning and both John Hannah and Gwyneth have deserved every success since. For this film put them both well and trually on the map & for a British hit its unconvential and fresh in its approach, something which has thankfully stayed with it & made it worth the buy as well!
