A man takes his thoroughly-British daughter to his home country, India. There, he arranges her marriage to someone she considers a fool. The daughter attempts to outwit them, but the groom quietly and patiently hatches his own plan.
Following the lives of ten characters through their letters and diaries in the ten days before D-Day. The mini-series contains documentary interviews with the people on which the book, and this mini-series were based.
Typical British fun of with standard requirement for romance
Well presented and acted film containing many new faces to British film and movie goers, yet good entertainment that not just the Brits will enjoy.
Universal problem of loyalty and fidelity dealt with in interesting manner, and directed & produced with unerring insight into our hidden and exposed weaknesses.
The main male character appears to represent so many of us who languish in negativity concerning our misfortunes in life, but rather than present some super-hero who magically falls on his feet, the transmigration is honest and believable, making the film thoroughly enjoyable.
This will likely follow hotly in the footsteps of similar British-birthed films, such as Four Weddings and a Funeral - could David be the new Hugh Grant? I'll leave that for you to decide.
