The Camomile Lawn is ageless and wonderfully English.
I love The Camomile Lawn. Sometimes when life is fraught, the answer is to watch a dvd which is entertaining and totally pleasing. This dvd is perfect as a timepiece of bygone England, yet somehow its subtext remains contemporary in its gentle exposure of the human state of mind's twist and turns. Highly recommended.

Camomile Lawn DVD
Wanted this DVD to add to my collection of films and dramas featuring Toby Stephens and it was not available on usual outlets as it's from 1992. The drama itself is excellent and stands up well to present day standards (better than a lot of stuff on TV now in fact.) However,the quality of the DVD is not very good. It keeps freezing up and blurring and the episodes are not divided up as in the original series. It was just about watchable, but for the price I feel somewhat ripped off.

The Camomile Lawn
I really like Mary Wesley's quirky and irreverent style of writing. This is a meandering tale of war torn England with an outstanding cast of players: Felicity Kendal, Paul Eddington, Virginia McKenna, Jennifer Ehle, Tara Fitzgerald and Toby Stevens. It is classic Wesley fare and centres around the wider family of Helena and Richard Cuthbertson, beginning in Cornwall where the titular camomille lawn is to be found, and moving to blitz-torn London. As usual, with this author, not an enormous amount of action takes place, but it is the interplay between each of the well crafted and fascinating characters that makes the story so interesting. I was hooked from start to finish, thoroughly enjoying this very adult fare. I was constantly reminded of the parallels with Wesley's own unorthodox life and the fact that she was really quite an elderly lady when she began her writing career. If you like the unusual, enjoy a wartime setting, and are fascinated by the upper crust antics of a bygone age, then you will love this! Read full review

camomile lawn. no idea on rating. never seen it.
i bought it as a gift for someone else who wanted it. never seen it and dont think i will as its not the sort of film i would be interested. cant even understand why i was told to write a review on it either really. i should have been able to choose my own thing if i wanted to write a review but ebay knows best!!!!!
