A Must See,
This review is from: Possession [DVD]  (DVD)
You will not be disappointed with either the book by A S Byatt (over 500 pages) or the DVD/Video. Although the film adaptation differs in several places from the book, which should be read first, you will be moved by both. The cinematography and the acting are both excellent: a look at the cast list will confirm the depth of acting ability. The changes in time in the film from 1859 to the present day, and back again, are simple and magnificent. The direction of this film is first class. The use of real UK locations, particularly Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, will appeal to the well-travelled viewer. You cannot fail to be moved by this historical and romantic drama.
