3.0 out of 5 stars How about history lukewarm?, 18 Dec 2008
This review is from: The Other Boleyn Girl [DVD] (2008) (DVD)
*The Other Boleyn Girl* is a beautiful Hollywood production which has nothing to do with true history.
Many important facts are incorrect and in addition to this some of them have never happend in history.

If Justion Chadwick would have stuck to true history this movie could have been terrific.

Contrary to the interessting Tudor-history this movie is a lukewarm experiment.

In my opinion this movie comes in the same league as *Elisabeth* and *Elisabeth: The Golden Age*. The director Shekhar Kapur presents history after his own fashion as well as Justin Chadwick in *The Other Boleyn Girl*.

Because of the mutilated history I cannot recommend this film.

The only things worth seeing are the costumes and the acting ability of the actors.

Hmm! Tell me, when did any Hollywood production have anything to do with true history?
I notice you have no review for 'A Man For All Seasons' , as with any film, novel etc there is a certain amount of licence. However, this is an excellent film, with a first rate cast; and, for once, a worthy 'Oscar' winner, made in the days when production standards and acting ability counted for something, and needed no plethora of not so special effects to bolster its shaky foundations.

sorry, but I didn't see *A Man For All Seasons*. If you can recommend this film I will try to get it.
you are right. I can't remember any Hollywood production that has anything to do with true history except *Anne Of The Tausand Days*. It comes very close to true history.

But on the other hand it would be something new to show real history in a Hollywood production.

please forgive my English. I'm not very good in writing
