Perfection
10 April 2008 | by FellwandererSee all my reviews

I can only echo the words of the previous reviewer.

The performance of Jenny Agutter is simply superb, touching innocence can never have been better portrayed - unless it was her own performance in The Snow Goose.

I first saw this on a B/W television while at university back in 1971 and never forgot it. For years I have searched for it and only a chance comment allowed me to eventually track it down.

Finally, today, I was able to watch it in colour as part of the Henrik Ibsen Collection.

What a shame the BBC don't make it available in the UK, either as part of a set or actually televise it once more!
