Product Description

FAINTHEART is the result of MyMovieMashUp, the ground-breaking initiative by MySpace, Vertigo Films and Film4 that sought to harness the collective creativity of the world s largest online community. Set in the world of battle re-enactments, FAINTHEART is a comedy that charts the epic quest of Viking Warrior Readmund the Just, aka Richard the sales assistant (Eddie Marsan), as he attempts to win back the love of his long suffering wife Cath (Jessica Hynes). Tired of Richard s all-consuming obsession with his Iron-age alter ego, Cath kicks him out of their home and into the real world. His honour is put in further peril when Cath begins seeing Martin s PE teacher Gary (Paul Nicholls). Realising he must finally face up to the challenges of the present day and fatherly responsibility, Richard enlists the help of best friend and Trekkie , Julian (Ewen Bremner). Together with Julian and a merry band of assorted geeks known as the Bloody Broadswords , Richard must summon all of his Norse courage to discover the real warrior within.

This film is not in anyway sophisticated, and does not contain deep insights. However, it is a very warm film with lots of funny touches. It pokes gentle fun at the popular British hobby of historical re-enactment. There are both poignant and hilarious moments, and in some ways the film is a reflection of life in the English town and countryside. The setting is beautiful, around Ludlow in Shropshire. The cast is great, including some promising young actors. I recommend watching this film.

My DVD arrived the Saturday before release which was a nice surprise! If you like small budget British comedies with a romantic feel and some nerdy characters then this is for you. Stand out performance for me was Ewen Bremner as the manager of a sci-fi comic shop who is desperate for a girlfriend. His pal Richard played by Eddie Marsan is the film's lead and is a devoted Viking re-enactor to the expense of his marriage. The film is about his efforts to win back his wife played by Jessica Hynes in a very sour part. Tim Healy is rather underused as the leader of the Vikings. The opening battle scenes are very Gladiator-esque given the slim budget! The locations are well used with Ludlow Castle providing a fine backdrop to the Viking action.

Well worth a look in my book.

A great little uk made film, with a fab cast, about a guy who does battle reenactments.
He doesn't realise that his life has slowly unravelled whilst he's away clashing swords etc...
Its very funny and well written, directed etc.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

We went to see this in the cinema on a cold dark evening during the recession. We came out feeling happy. The whole audience laughed together and much of the comedy was worked around things that could easily happen to ordinary people.

We were glad we saw it in widescreen before we ordered the DVD, because the views of the castle and surrounding countryside drew you in as a bonus. We enjoyed the soundtrack too as it really supported the emotional journey so we have ordered that too. Cheer yourself up with this film.Faintheart [2008]

Okay. Light hearted, but a bit self indulgent and dull. Typical British comedy, with an overly sentimental, family feud fantasy.
Just not that funny, more depressing really, but has a positive ending.

I absolutely loved this.The film has a charm that we have come to know and love of British comedy dramas.The acting superb and the characters believable. You ride every emotion with our hero the fabulous Eddie Marsan,willing him on.This film is a real gem, and reminded me of the brilliant Detectorists series with McKenzie Crook which is also quietly understated.Get this, watch it and enjoy the glowing feeling afterwards.

it a brilliant English comedy, Chloe Hesar is a brilliant actress who would make an excellent dr who assistant. Her music as cloe corpse is brilliant as well, if you love real music check out her songs. All in all this film is one of the best British films in years. If you miss this than you miss out

I never knew about this film until 10 days ago when I learned a friend and his friend were extra's in it,although their scene was cut,but decided to buy it anyway and I must say it's absolutely fantastic and very funny and for the price you can't go wrong.
