Serena Scott Thomas (Actor), Peter Davison (Actor), James Cellan Jones (Director) & 0 more Rated: Suitable for 15 years and over Format: VHS Tape Harnessing Peacocks  [VHS] – Girl meets guy, losses him, builds a life anyway.
‘harnessing peacocks’ is a beautiful adaptation of the mary wesley novel. Serena scott thomas is the english rose who is disowned by her affluent loved ones for demonstrating up expecting immediately after a carnival with no plan who the father is. Her unjust exile, qualified prospects her to marketing her sexual favours to a choose few males who she cares about and who care deeply for her, in purchase to provide for her son. This isnt prostitution, its a easy company arrangement with feelings connected. As with many of the tv set diversifications of the early 90’s, i consider it would be tricky to make this nowadays. Ahead of the reduction of national identity in britain and the eu relationship there was an air of ‘british quaintness’ to these productions that doesnt exist actually any more. Really worth digging out at the time a 12 months to get pleasure from, particularly john mills as the world weary charmer. Appreciate spotting the areas in the residence counties that you know (amersham sector and so on) and dip your nose back again into a time when maybe, existence truly was a little bit considerably less challenging.
I watched this on television and video taped it. I was thrilled to see it as a dvd and have relished viewing it time and time yet again. Very good plot, terrific actors and actresses. Truly feel i would like them as my have pals.
So joyful that i located it on dvd.
A good operate of cinema graphic artwork that brings together all the attributes so lacking in most modern-day movies.

Reviews from purchasers :
- Excellent in every way
- Mary Wesley at her best
- lovely dvd watched many times
A sentimental, but satisfying tale of enjoy misplaced and adore identified, with a handful of aspect tales that are incredibly human and humorous, as perfectly.
How does a youthful female from a rich family with no expertise or schooling assist herself and her little one when they convert their backs on her?. An completely charming movie centered on e-book by mary wesley. The people are charming, the plot whole of twists, the surroundings is stunning, and the man will get his woman in the finish.
Not undesirable but nothing special right here. Could seriously place it in a category. The actors are ok but the directing isn’t.
Almost certainly not a person for any person who does not like intercourse or lousy language – but i love this romp.
This is a rather enjoyable small movie – from some time back again thoughts you -1992 – andnice to see kristin scott thomas’s sister undertaking a fantastic occupation. Disgrace that the transfer to dvd is very bad. Grainy and a fairly washed out colour saturate. The seem receives a little bit out of sync too i am scared. This is possibly a bad machines transfer process of the time, or a very poor unique tape from which it was copied. This illustration of the movie was generated for dvd in 2003. There is a a great deal more new duplicate created in 2011 (distinct dvd scenario address photograph), and this is very likely to be a considerably much better duplicate. Perhaps truly worth a consider for those people who basically will have to have this movie in their collection.
Great little tale glad to have it again in my library.
Absent spherical the full household ,it was great.
A lovely movie from a beautiful e-book.
Obtaining study all of mary wesleys book this dvd fulfilled all my up to my expictions.
Quite pleasant and beautiful to see all the mature actors eg. Satisfied ending also which is usually welcome .
Film très chaleureux, personnages très bien interprétés, atmosphère réaliste mais available. Il me manque un épisode touchant: celui de bernard quigley retrouvant amy et la couvrant de fleurs. L’âge vous rend très sentimental. Je regrette que le film ne soit pas sous-titré, je ne peux en faireprofiter des amis mal-entendants. Avez-vous d’autres movies adaptés des oeuvres de mary wesley ?.
This is a person of mary wesley’s very best, fantastically directed and acted. The story is pretty risqué but really believable, you get to see serena scott thomas putting on a hat (that’s all) and the figures are all brilliantly portrayed.
There is a slight delay amongst speech/lip movement and actual seem particularly towards the stop of the film. I would like the dvd replacing asap. Be sure to suggest the treatment for undertaking this.
A beautiful movie which closely follows the fantastic book. It is effectively cast and manufactured. I beforehand experienced the vhs version and this has been perfectly generated on dvd.
I enjoy mary wesley’s textbooks and this film did not disappoint.
Excellent valueand servicethank you.
