5.0 out of 5 stars Winstons back!, 22 Jun. 2004

This review is from: The Gathering Storm [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
To play Winston Churchill well is an almost impossible task for an actor because he is such a charismatic and instantly recognisable figure.As well as that he is still so loved and revered by our Nation it is almost sacrilege to try. Many have attempted the role but none have succeeded until now. Albert Finney is superb and deserves the all plaudits he has received. He captures Churchill wonderfully and shows us a gentle and emotional side of the man that few were aware of. This is much more than just a war story and gives a real insight into the great mans character. It also re-emphasises that Churchill stood alone in the face of political ridicule to warn of the dangers of Nazism. His home Chartwell is used for much of the filming and Churchills real love for his home and country is beautifully illustrated. This film is a classic and anyone interested in Churchill should not hesitate to buy it. You will not be dissapointed.
