Every life is ordinary and extraordinary. Logan Mountstuart's is a rich tapestry of both. Matthew Macfadyen, Jim Broadbent, and newcomer Sam Claflin all take a turn as Logan at different points in his life in this provocative glimpse at one man's quest for glory and bliss. Any Human Heart is the story of a full life, lived with passion--expansive, rich, unsentimental, comic, and profoundly moving.

Any Human Heart -- I saw it first on PBS and had to see it again, and again. Bought it for my mother who is in a nursing home.
Truly elegant character acting, film editing, and storytelling at its best. "The personal is political." This story touches the heart and leaves a permanent wound that also heals. Reminds us we are all connected.
We need more such stories in our dehumanized time. Kudos to the author, the director and actors. Thank you for bringing the book to life.

Not for everyone

Acting and production values are great, Masterpiece Theatre up to its usual high standards. Be forewarned: unbelievably depressing and somewhat maudlin. And our protagonist drinks enough alcohol to pickle an elephant's liver. Between that and sleeping with an assortment of mostly uninteresting women, it's hard to really empathize, and ultimately sympathize, with the main character. We start with an interesting man who shows promise but who instead devolves into a clownish and diluted echo of his former self. Look past the production values and there's not much to hang on to.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Any Human Heart DVD (U.K. Edition):

This program was one of those that moved me on first airing on American television (PBS). I had hoped it would get re-aired as I liked it quite a lot as both entertainment and as a program which was moving and made me think--the tale of a life and its memories, regrets, and joys. I was pleased to find it on DVD and the program is excellent again on this second viewing. It is several parts and after each, one is eager for the next.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Any Human Heart DVD (U.K. Edition):

I first watched this movie on PBS and just hated to finish . I had watched it two times on Channel 11. So I had to buy it, so I can watched over and over again. This is such a remarkable story ! Movie !

Great Acting / Great Screenplay

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Any Human Heart DVD (U.K. Edition):

I loved all of the very talented actors in this captivating series. I have seen almost all of the key actors in movies, HBO, Showtime, and other Masterpiece presentations. It was a little different from other Masterpiece series, but still very entertaining, following the life of Mountstuart from his college years to his golden years. Plenty of unusual characters and situations. Lots of adult situations and nudity.
