Goofs

When Stella receives a phone call from her fiancé, she tells him that the "pips" are going and that he should insert more money to continue the call. The "pips" did not come in until 1959. Prior to that local calls were unlimited in duration and long distance calls were via the operator, who would announce when your time was up and you needed to insert further coins. See more »

Totally satisfying to heart and mind in deep contrast with newly released ENIGMA.
6 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I must compare LAND GIRLS (1998)with the newly-released (2001) ENIGMA both of which I saw this evening. The more recent film is utterly cliche-ridden (Tom Stoppard, the screenwriter, even throws in a bit borrowed from John Buchan's 39 STEPS!) while David Leland's movie continues to surprise the viewer to the last frame. The horror,the restraint, the mood of Britain at war come through careful period reconstruction. Reality is heightened so that the dazzlingly photographed British countryside continually reminds us of the dark shadow of War which hangs over these young lives. The acting is uniformly good and many of the cast come from the British stage to deliver real truth-of-performance. Unlike ENIGMA'S characters you believe the Land Girls and the people around them.
