Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First, let me say that I like this movie so much that I took a chance on this Zone 1: NTSC DVD playing on my cheapo PAL DVD player - and was pleasantly surprised: no problemo!

For a fan of dark science fiction and things that go BANG ! this film is one of my few choices that I really rate that, one might claim, strays into the realm of “chick-filcks”. Her indoors often accuses me of nodding off in the bits where people must “relate” or get all kissy-kissy - especially if that excessively soppy stuff is being dragged out when they ought to be busy escaping from imminent catastrophe, but “Housekeeping” isn’t like that, despite being a virtually all female cast; it’s about a free spirit, unencumbered by the conditioning of convention but, at the same time, trying to make a little bit of effort to compromise to what she sees as the expectations of a conservative community - that is, just up to the point where it just ain’t worth it, and then...
It’s a film that’s a bit special and a bit different and succeeds in leaving me smiling all over.
Christine Lahti is brilliant in this and well supported by a more than able cast.
Bill Forsyth (Gregory’s Girl; Local Hero; Comfort & Joy) makes an exception to his preference for not normally straying out of his native Scotland for this one and a well worthwhile excursion it turns out to be.

I can only add my dismay to that of the other reviewers above, that such a charming and quirky film should disappear as it has. There are tens of thousands of films with much less to recommend them, that are still available, sometimes in more than one edition. Sigh!

This is an utterly original film about an unusual, and wonderful woman, ( maybe aspergers), who looks after her two nieces, orphaned by the suicide of their mother, in such a disorganised and unconventional way that the neighbours begin to interfere, and what starts off as a portrait of dippy dreamy madcap difference becomes a picture of how dangerous it can be to be different, especially as a woman.

I heartily recommend this film. And if anyone knows where I could get hold of it please let me know!

I agree with everything the previous reviewers says. Why isn't this film available on DVD (let alone VHS)? It is Bill Forsyth's finest. A classic.
