Ratings & Reviews

  1. Elina E's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    The perfect adaptation. Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons are perfect for their roles, in fact, all characters are brilliantly casted. The aesthetic of the film suits the characters and storyline wonderfully, and so does the soundtrack. Follows the novel exactly, and the script mostly follows the novel's dialogue and first person narrative. God I love this.

  2. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    Literary/theatrical television masterclass, truly engaging, despite the horrendous & realistically depressing & suffocating catholic-bourgeoisie ending (which, of course, is Waugh's original touch, not the series' fault per se). The ending is a good meter to gauge whether one has found his/her place in society and understands it, or whether one hates it.

  3. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    For what it is worth, I don't think it is a great book but it offered the filmmakers a wonderful opportunity. Irons, Nicholls, Bloom, Gielgud, Washbourne, Grace, Asher, Olivier and Audran are especially fine. It goes on too long however.

  4. Arijit Ghosh's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    A long story of another era well told. Very British. Very well portrayed by Jeremy Iron.

  5. José Neves's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    the first half was amazing. the later bits? meh

  7. Danny Bailey's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    One of the most perfect flawless masterpieces of the small screen. Irons, Andrews, Olivier, and company put a lot of gusto into this 13 hour production that leaves you wanting more.

  8. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    A superb adaptation that avoids any 'heritage' pitfalls and instead provides a very faithful and languidly melancholic saunter through another of Waugh's 'decline and fall' stories of the English aristocracy on its uppers. It's almost faultless in most respects and - cliche though it is - a high peak in the possibilities of British television.

  9. Roscoe's rating of the film Brideshead Revisited

    Very fine at its best, self-indulgent at its worst. Fight through to the final episode to see Lord Olivier's performance, one of the finest he ever did.
