Format: VHS Tape
The story of C Cookson is in itself partly unusual: depicting the sad story of an Irish girl married by a black man, - secondly to me it seems she is not sparing us from the very harsh realities of life. First I thought there were too many cruelties, blood etc in the film, but by the end I realised they were in the right place. This film is full of enthusiasm for life.
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.

Not easy to find this DVD--but very pleased with it in all respects. Had i known in advance that this terrific film had been based on a book by Catherine Cookson--( who wrote romantic stuff for women mainly didn't she?) I wouldn't have watched ( the half I did see ) on TV. Well what a mistake that would have been. The cast was superb in every way and well chosen, and the lead actress Carmen Ejogo in Particular. The story on inter-racial tentions in all it's 'blindness' was discomforting--for the right reasons, in places. Reccomended--P G Croft

4.0 out of 5 stars BLIND SIDED 31 Oct. 2000
By Bonita L. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
A poor family in post World War I England is overjoyed in hearing that their daughter has come back home. Her husband is a sailor which means more income for the household. All is well until they meet him. You see, he is a Black man and despite their poverty and his good spirit, they resent and hate him.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Catherine Cookson Film 28 Aug. 2011
By L. Jerome - Published on Amazon.com
Brought me to tears at times, had me on the edge of my seat sometimes and just kept me thoroughly entertained all the time. A lovely, romantic drama featuring a biracial girl's life in post-War England. There are the good (her "Uncle", the bad (her grandmother) and the ugly (her biological Uncle). But most of all, there is a father-daughter relationship that survives forced separation and racial harassment.

Beautiful movie, which I can watch again and again. Apparently one of Ms. Cookson's first novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful movie! 13 Dec. 2012
By sealady - Published on Amazon.com
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I wasn't certain at first if I was going to like this when I started to watch it. The predujice and hatred were very depressing and discouraging, but as the movie progressed and turned into a beautiful love story, it became obvious that Love can triumph over all! True love is colour blind!
