Having watched the dire adaptations of the Winter Solstice novel by the same producers, I began this DVD with a heavy heart, and quickly found that, despite a few creaky moments, it really works well. I think the main reason for this is Vanessa Redgrave, an actress of such immense presence that she can carry almost anything. Here she has a decent script, excellent performances from Maximilian Schell and Prunella Scales amongst others, and pretty decent production values. A surprisingly good watch, really.

Excellent dvd as so true to the book. A lot of films and dvd's do not match the story, but this one does. Ofcourse, the wonderful acting of Vanessa Redgrave never fails anyone.

I don't know how so many reviewers say this adaptation follows the book closely , the first five minutes are fine but after that it's as if the director dropped the script messing up all the scenes and carried on regardless changing the dialogue and making up ridiculous ideas to join the parts back together. Vanessa Redgrave was the only person who was good and well cast all the others were dreadfully miss-cast. Nancy was slim not obese Olivia was overpowering and abrupt not cynical and businesslike Noel was like a pathetic wimp not a scheming womaniser Cosmo was too young with completely the wrong personality and Antonia was dark haired and stroppy not blond and sweet . One of the main characters Danus who should have been prominent did not appear until late in the second instalment and turned from an Adonis exuding masculinity to a petulant child. The whole essence of the book was lost by completely flat acting by most of the cast. Quite possibly one of the worst book adaptations I've ever watched - it's a lesson in how to turn an excellent book into a terrible film. It shouldn't have been called Rosamunde Pilcher's "The Shell Seekers" but a film very loosely based on Rosamunde Pilcher's "The Shell Seekers".

I thoroughly wenjoyed this version of the Shell Seekers, Vanessa Redgrave was excellent as Penolope Keeling, and the other members of the cast worked well. Also the best thing was that the film followed the story closely.
