It is interesting to become familiar with Irish life through this film. Art Malik is a good actor here too - adds a lot to this film even though he appears only for a brief period. Still, his role is crucial.
I very much recommend this film for home video entertainment. Good actors, good filming everywhere.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Thus begins Dame Cookson's chronicle of a dysfunctional family dealing with the question of race, class, alcoholism and self esteem through one generation to the next. You see the best and worst of the family who can never forget that their sister, daughter married a Black man and bore his child.
You get the opportunity to witness the young child growing up in an England that everyone would think is color blind but surprises us at every turn. Our young heroine Rose Angela must deal with the question of who and what she is at every turn. But this is more than a story concerning race. We see deep seated loyalties, rebelliousness but most of all a love that attempts to endure for both generations. Whether or not it will endure for Rose Angela is a mystery as she is confronted with another form of prejudice.
This video is entertaining, highly informative about English attitudes towards race and is touching in seeing how people attempt to survive even the worst of times. You will find yourself running into surprises and gaining new insights about how far a person will go who is in love.
Beautiful movie, which I can watch again and again. Apparently one of Ms. Cookson's first novels.
