Un ricco filantropo alleva con il nipote Blifil, legittimo erede, un figlio di ignoti, Tom, che si rivela simpatico e generoso mentre il nipote è un furfante ipocrita ed egoista. Tra i due non corre buon sangue, anzi Blifil riuscirà a far cacciare Tom dal ricco filantropo. La vicenda è resa più complicata dal fatto che Tom ama Sofia, una ragazza destinata invece a Blifil. Sofia ama però Tom e fugge da casa per evitare il matrimonio con Blifil. Ma non le è facile coronare il suo sogno d'amore. Soltanto dopo complesse peripezie riuscirà ad unirsi a Tom, che nel contempo viene riconosciuto come erede legittimo dal filantropo.
Winner of four Academy Awards including best picture, director, screenplay, and music, this 1963 adaptation of Henry Fielding's classic novel is a rousing, bawdy comedy about a young man's ribald adventures in 18th-century England. Albert Finney is splendidly hilarious in the title role of a charming womanizer who was discovered as an abandoned infant in the bed of Squire Allworthy, a wealthy landowner who named the child Tom Jones and raised him as his own. As a young man, Tom yearns for the comely daughter (Susannah York) of a neighboring squire, but his amorous adventures (including an extended food orgy that becomes the film's funniest scene) lead him to London and to a duel with a jealous husband. He's sentenced to hang, but fate intervenes. A hit around the world, the film was expertly written by noted playwright John Osborne, and director Tony Richardson uses a variety of old-style movie techniques to heighten the lusty, good-natured fun. Don't miss this one! --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I saw this film many years ago in Switzerland while on a skiing holiday.
All the English people were thoroughly enjoying it and in great fits of laughter.
The continentals remained silent all the time and I think were in a state
of shock? I played the film on receipt and once again enjoyed it anew.
The DVD arrived within the time stated and in the condition stated.

Such a shame that you can't get a version of this without Scandinavian subtitles despite the fact that all the dialogue is in English. Still, a great film!
