| An appallingly bad film
I am appalled that anyone would write favourably about this film. Jeremy Irons is completely inappropriate for this role and his son is about as good an actor as Daniel Radcliffe in Harry Potter, i.e. not very good at all. The film completely and utterly destroys the entire essence of what Dahl captured so beautifully in his book: the timelessness of a simple, and authentic existence in an English post- war rural setting. I love Coltrane and Nail, yet they must have been desperate for work to have allowed themselves to be associated with such a low quality production. I feel morally obliged to become a film maker in order to redo this film in such a way as to do justice to the beauty of the book. Absolute garbage!
