Product description

Product Description

Milos Forman's acclaimed adaptation of the Ken Kesey novel. After being imprisoned for statutory rape, an unrepentant Randle Patrick McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) is transferred to a state mental hospital where he must serve out the remainder of his sentence. Here he sets about leading his fellow inmates in a revolt against the cold and inflexible Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) and the hospital's systematic oppression of its patients. The film won five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor (Nicholson) and Best Actress (Fletcher).

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the key movies of the 1970s, when exciting, groundbreaking, personal films were still being made in Hollywood, Milos Forman's One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest emphasised the humanistic story at the heart of Ken Kesey's more hallucinogenic novel. Jack Nicholson was born to play the part of Randle Patrick McMurphy, the rebellious inmate of a psychiatric hospital who fights back against the authorities' cold attitudes of institutional superiority, as personified by Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher). It's the classic antiestablishment tale of one man asserting his individuality in the face of a repressive, conformist system--and it works on every level. Forman populates his film with memorably eccentric faces, and gets such freshly detailed and spontaneous work from his ensemble that the picture sometimes feels like a documentary. Unlike a lot of films pitched at the "youth culture" of the 1970s, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest really hasn't dated a bit, because the qualities of human nature that Forman captures--playfulness, courage, inspiration, pride, stubbornness--are universal and timeless. The film swept the Academy Awards for 1976, winning in all the major categories (picture, director, actor, actress, screenplay) for the first time since Frank Capra's It Happened One Night in 1931. --Jim Emerson

Very disappointed - not with the film, but with Amazon.
I bought this disc in February to replace my VHS version and decided to watch it last night - after me "Return Window" closed.
The first thing I noticed was that the cover design is different to the one shown here. Secondly, the disc is labelled "For rental or resale", so it is not a copy intended for the domestic market.
The main nDVD player displayed a No Disc error. The PC threw up an error message saying that the disc could not by played due to copyright restrictions.
Amazon has sold my faulty goods that do not match the description and do not work, but will not allow me a refund or replacement.

Brilliant movie.How could anyone dislike R P Mc Murphy. Great movie albeit quite sad,but great reflection on societal roles also.Would recommend highly. Have also read the book and found that to be equally as good,if not also a little better,but Nicholson is excellent in the lead role. Definitley close to the book in enjoyment.If you haven't seen this movie then you must be cuckoo.
