Quotes

[first lines]
Samuel Taylor Coleridge: Like one that on a lonesome road doth walk in fear and dread, and having once turned 'roud walks on and turns no more his head, because he knows a frightful fiend doth close behind him tred. 'Tis a strange place this limbo, not a place yet named so.

Crazy Credits

The credits start with one letter, which becomes the name of the person involved. They don't seem to make any sense, but most are letters incorporated in the word PANDAEMONIUM (the last Text before the Cast Listing starts). See more »

A Stunning Movie!
10 March 2002 | by (sheffield, england) – See all my reviews

I've been a movie fan for only a year, and have seen dozens in that time. This is by far the most exciting and memorable movie I've seen. Before seeing the movie I had no interest in English poets and knew little about them. After seeing the movie, I was entranced and had to find out more.

The movie tells the story through the laudanum delusions of Coleridge. Linus Roache is awesome in the role and the weaving of his poetry and his weird and scary visions is breathtakingly original. Coleridge and the Wordsworths lived 200 years ago and yet they seemed of our time. Using drugs, craving new experiences and sensations, they are like young people of today, scandalising their elders and shocking polite society.

The camera techniques are spectacular, as are the costumes, the locations and the editing, as you would expect from a production connected with the BBC. Watch and enjoy - you will not be disappointed!
