Format: Blu-ray
Another masterful literary adaptation from Masterpiece Classic! What a stunning, aching portrayal of WWI!

I'm disappointed that there were only two episodes made (each being 90 minutes in length) -- I could have sat through hours and hours of this series! The casting was great and the cinematography was breath-taking. Each frame looked like a painting. The story itself was etched out slowly and beautifully, cutting back and forth to past and present times. A few people have commented that the series omitted a large chunk of the story from the novel, but doesn't that happen in every miniseries produced? We really can't expect the producers to stick to the story 100%, all of the time. So yes, despite the fact that some things were missing from the miniseries, I do think that Masterpiece and the BBC did a wonderful job in adapting this novel for the screen.

I found Songbird to be slightly more interesting in the second half as missing pieces and emotions were explained and came together. If someone found this to be too sad or "depressing"...perhaps that is what war is? I thought that the second series fit perfectly well with the first and it was with great thought that this film moved forward and developed as it did. The film gave different vision of command during the war as opposed to some films that expand toward the absurdity of "generals" of which this is perfectly true but enough said for now. This film is no "Very Long Engagement" but succeeds in it's own story.

Fabulous movie! The book is brilliant and the movie portrayed it well. It highlights the horrors of the trenches in WW1 intermingled with a beautiful love story. I will order from Amazon again as the DVD arrived promptly and in perfect condition.

This movie is a beautiful love story and the actors were perfect in their parts. I loved this movie from beginning to end. It was very realistic and had all the right components for a great classic!
