Customer Review

on 21 February 2008
This touching story is excellent family viewing and whilst I agree with another reviewer that it IS all too short,do not let this distract you from watching.
Martin Clunes is superb as the master who devotes his life to the education and pastoral concern of his charges.I had not realised quite what a versatile actor he was before viewing this but his performance in this touching drama deserved to be recognised.
It is a beautiful story, retold in a sensitive way and as we move through the decades Chips and his boys become involved in the Great War~it is brought home to us exactly what this war cost us in terms of life and sacrifice.
There are a couple of corporal punishment scenes that may make you wince a little but it is a fact of life that this was how school functioned then.
Please buy and watch this story~you will not regret it.Highly recommended.
