5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, funny, honest., 16 Dec 2010
This review is from: Any Human Heart [DVD] (DVD)
I have just finished watching the last episode of Any Human Heart. Like the previous reviewer, I am ordering the book, and can't wait to read it - if William Boyd's screenplay is anything to go by, the book will be astonishing.

This drama, although slow-moving, is utterly captivating. The themes of loss and regret are expertly, effortlessly woven throughout it, and the acting subtle, but moving. Jim Broadbent steals the show; in the first three episodes he hasn't even got a line but still manages to deliver a heartfelt, seamless performance. I will devour the book greedily, and when the DVD arrives I will savour it a second time.

not entirely true - Broadbent takes over the reigns in the last half hour of episode 3.

Well alright then... the first two and a half episodes. The sentiment remains the same; the fact that this fabulous actor can mesmerise his audience without even speaking blows me away, and his role in the last two episodes is heartbreaking, funny and sweet. Suffice to say, regardless of exactly the length of time he's on screen, whenever he is, he steals the show.

I loved the book but I found that even over four hours plus too much important detail had to be cut out making it seem a bit disjointed.
Beautifully filmed and great performances all round nonetheless.
