Movie Reviews

Good mystery drama
Mary Sharon | Delaware USA | 12/28/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This certainly held my interest. I found it a little hard to understand some of the dialogue because of the accent, but it was worth the effort. A young man, haunted by his uncle who disappeared under mysterious circumstances, goes looking for answers and uncovers a multitude of family secrets in the process. Very satisfying. Good acting, character studies, and plot."

"I originally saw this on BBC America years back and recorded it on VHS. I am excited for it to finally be available in this region on DVD. What a fantastic story and wonderfully acted, by everyone, but especially Joseph McFadden who plays Prentice. You may have to listen really hard to catch some things they say but it is a great story so rewind a few times until you catch it all, it's worth it."
A fantastic series that challenges the viewer
Nightflyer | 03/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a terrific series, but it does make some demands on the viewer. The frequent flashbacks (sometimes flashbacks within flashbacks) can be confusing on a first viewing; the Scottish brogue is sometimes difficult to understand; and anyone who has not spent some time in Scotland will probably not fully "get it." But if you make the effort to get past these things, this series is enormously rewarding. I'm watching it for the second time and getting so much more out of it than I did at first. Still, I loved it the first time too. And I am not exaggerating when I say it sometimes has me in tears, it is so moving.

But if you're the sort of viewer who does not want any challenges, you should probably give it a pass."
Al | Fanwood, NJ USA | 04/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recalled enjoying this back in 1996/7 when it was first aired on British TV; so I dug out a copy and I just finished watching it.

What a beautiful drama, the acting is superb; scenery, gorgeous; and the story is thoroughly engaging.

The dialogue can be slightly difficult to penetrate at times, but not so as to seriously impede one's enjoyment.

One of those programmes that reels you in completely. I was sorry when it was over.
