Effective television Ibsen
24 November 2009 | by didi-5See all my reviews

Juliet Stevenson is a fragile but determined Nora alongside Trevor Eve's strictly moral Torvald and Patrick Malahide as the ailing Rank. Ibsen's play is an excellent study of the collapse of a marriage and the objectification of women, and here it is beautifully performed.

The BBC no longer do these kind of classics, but this Doll's House is extremely well done and immaculately cast, and it stands up well against the equally stagey version with Claire Bloom and Anthony Hopkins, and the more filmic version with Jane Fonda and David Warner.

Highly recommended, and can be found on the Henrik Ibsen Collection boxset.
