Set before and during the great war, Birdsong captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale. It is the story of Stephen, a young Englishman, who arrives in Amiens in 1910. His life goes through a series of traumatic experiences, from the clandestine love affair that tears apart the family with whom he lives, to the unprecedented experiences of the war itself.

the photo displays the horrers of the war on the young mans face. what he witness on the front lines of friends and comradeswho lost there lives. and the memories that continue to haunt him thru out his life. even sometimes flash backs of the war. this was all wonderfully presented and the actors and actresses were well picked. eddie redmayne was great as steven,

Great story and actors but DVD has technical problems - part of the way into it, picture freezes, but disc keeps running, and then picture catches up, but stops again, and repeats in the same pattern, and continues for a while, and then it stops altogether.

Interesting way to tell the story.

By Butterfly Robin

from Pembroke Pines, Florida

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Birdsong DVD (U.K. Edition):

This story is told by flashbacks Stephen is having while fighting in the trenches in France, 1916. He is remembering his first love Isabelle. It has some very intimate scenes and brutal war scenes that show the truth about war. I would recommend buying this video. Well made video.

Birdsong... Deep and sensitive.

By PhyllisP

from San Diego

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Birdsong DVD (U.K. Edition):

I read the book many years-ago... And loved this movie ... It is so well done and beautifully acted, portraying with sensitivity the interwoven stories of love and the devastations of war in WW1 keeping close to the story line in the book ... A most enjoyable and heartfelt evening's viewing.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Birdsong DVD (U.K. Edition):

The realism transports you back to another place and time. While the romantic scenes steel your heart the war breaks it.
