Product Description

Product Description

This three-part drama sensitively portrays a teenage romance between an English boy and a Swedish girl. A joint Swedish-British production, Annika stars Jesse Birdsall and Christina Rigner alongside Bulman star Don Henderson, and was co-written by Colin Nutley, a multi-award-winning English director now living and working in Sweden. Nutley is highly acclaimed for his insightful treatment of the mores of his adopted country, and several of his films have been chosen to represent Sweden at leading international film festivals and at the Academy Awards. Eighteen-year-old Pete Daniels is spending the summer doing casual work on the Isle of Wight when he meets and falls in love with Annika, a fifteen-year-old language student. Their relationship quickly intensifies - but the time inevitably comes when Annika has to return to her homeland, and Pete makes a life-changing decision.

At last this excellent series is finally released on DVD. i remember watching the original series on Channel 4. The plot is well described elsewhere so won't go into it too much. i remember at the time how emotional i felt, i could easily relate to what they were going through, and i have no doubt you will too. it may bring a tear to your eye. Somehow the writer/s and director have managed to capture all that is great about your first true love, as well all the heartache it brings. superb acting all round. Everything seems to be just right, and captures the 80's perfectly. This is a must see.

I was very pleased that this 1984 Channel 4 production has been issued on DVD. There has been a consistent internet speculation over the years as to whether it would be issued. Some inferior quality "bootleg" copies of the TV series have been previously circulated but at last there is a reasonable if not perfect print.

The theme of "Annika" is first love and as such is universal in its appeal. We all have this experience and it is so intense and bitter sweet that we remember it for the rest of our lives.

The story of Pete and Annika is very well scripted and performed and expertly captures the supreme happiness of fresh love and the heartstopping pain that can be associated with it.

I do not want to give away the plot except to say that it is set in the Isle of Wight in England in the mid 1980's and where a lively young but directionless lad, Pete, meets a Swedish girl, Annika, who is visiting England with her school friends to study English. Pete is experienced sexually but has never had his emotions engaged before. His meeting with Annika changes this and Pete soon realises that his selfish sexual life will never be the same again.

There is a very apt soundtrack which heightens the emotions involved as well as some lively pop music by the Waltons.

I strongly recommend this DVD.

This has to be the most romantic film I've ever seen. The cultural nuances of an ordinary London lad (a young Jesse Birdsall) desperate to impress Annika (Christiana Rigner) and her parents in Sweden had me on the edge of my seat and there won't be a dry eye in the house by the finish, trust me! The film had me doing searches across the globe for other Nutley films.

I loved this programme when it was on the 1st time & cannot understand why it has never been repeated & so was so glad that it came out on DVD. Brought back happy memories of holidays on the Isle of Wight too! Such a sweet, "innocent" drama that seems of a different time even tho' it was only in the 80's but you can watch it over & over. The title music is great too. A lovely DVD.

I loved this Series first time around when it was shown on TV in the 80's! I was glad to see it had been released on DVD. Has it stood the test of time? Most definitely, although I always wished for a happier ending but that's the romantic in me. The ending was actually true to life.

Shame Jesse Birdsall faded into obscurity as I think his acting in this was very good.

This early 80s mini-series was obviously aimed at the late teens/early 20s market. The story line is steady without going into any great depth. It's all about relationships - with old friends, new friends, employers, families and lovers. Good for a bit of easy and steady midweek viewing.

Really great to see this again, I have been waiting for this to be released for ages.
Although last time I saw this I was a teenager I was not disappointed now due to overly rosy memories, I was just reminded why it had appealed to me so much then. Great story, great casting, great atmosphere.
It really is good!
