portrait of the collapse of a family
15 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'The Wild Duck', a TV play starring Denholm Elliott, Rosemary Leach, Christopher Benjamin, Derek Godfrey, and Jenny Agutter, is a fine example of the work of Henrik Ibsen, and beautifully performed, especially by the young Agutter (around the same time she did the much better remembered 'The Railway Children').

Like many dramas from writers of the same time such as Chekhov, there is an idyllic life ready to be shattered by someone who seems to mean well - with this in mind, we can see that the ending may not be a happy one, and can probably guess the revelations that tear the family apart. Still, it is well played, and well worth seeing, especially now it has a long overdue DVD release.
