Movie Reviews

If you're not a Dench fan now, you will be
F. Glass | MA | 04/06/2007

"What a wonderful collection of Dame Judi's work. I am particularly enjoying the works that I've not found individually: "Talking to a Stranger", the 1962 "Cherry Orchard", and "Keep an Eye on Amelie". In each of these we see the young Judi (before the Dame) already totally entrancing us by being at once the character in each play and at the same time being herself. It must be magic.

Her take on the Madame Ranevsky role, in the 1981 version of "The Cherry Orchard", is entirely hers and absolutely perfect for this viewer. Some of her later work in this collection includes: "Absolute Hell" and "Can You Hear Me Thinking". You will also find, among the bonus features several radio plays, and three interviews with Dame Judi that give us all a closer glimpse and appreciation of the intelligence, and honesty behind the talent.

For Dench fans, this is a must!"
Judi dench has not missed her calling

"I received my collection yesterday. Was I ever so happy. " What a little fire cracker" as Rockie states in "As time goes by". Judi Dench was made for the stage, the screen and to perform. She did not miss her calling. I have just started watching the first two DVD and I am fixated on her performance in Talking to a Stranger. What energy she has and at such a young age.
I will give you more feedback as a descend my viewing of each but I must tell you I am not the lease disappointed in this collection. I received it in ample time and it has numerous additions to the set i.e.: bonus, which I love.

"EXCELLENT SET. ALL THE BEST ADJECTIVES MUST BE ADDRESSED TO ANYTHING PROPOSED HERE, BUT AS A STRANGER I HAVE BOUGHT THE SET BECAUSE WE ARE INFORMED IT IS 'CLOSED CAPTIONED' AND I AM TOLD IT MEANS IT HAS SUBTITLES.
THE SET I RECEIVED HAS NO SUBTITLES. NOT AT ALL. I AM TOLD THE SAME SET RELEASED IN U.K. HAS INDEED SUBTITLES. I HAVE WRITTEN TO BBC AMERICA BUT I GOT NO ANSWER WHICH IS TOO BAD ... ISN'T IT?

Bravissima Judi!

"Proof that Ms. Dench is one of our finest actresses today. An important set to own and cherish! And as "icing to the cake" her superb rendition of "Send in the Clowns" is included."
