Lovely Movie - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society review by JD

Spoiler Alert

What an excellent adaptation of this popular best selling book.

Exciting love story that is based on historic facts which are sometimes upsetting to hear about, but important to appreciate what the local residents had to endure when the Germans invaded their island in the Second World War.

The acting is first class, as are the locations.

Twee - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society review by JR

Spoiler Alert

As twee as its title, this is romantic fiction but lacking in any chemistry between the leads. The dark history of the Nazi occupation of Guernsey is relegated to the background in favour of un-funny 'quirky' characters, pretty scenery and pretty dresses.

A most enjoyable film - well worth viewing. - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society review by George

Spoiler Alert

We cannot agree with review number 1, but our reaction to the film was very much as review 2. This did portray life under the Nazis, we were shown slave labour, people were starving, a young woman was shot and always what happened in WW2 was coming back to haunt the characters. We also had the illicit love affair of a local young woman and a decent German officer. She was deported to the Ravensbruck Concentration Camp where she was shot, protecting another prisoner. He was posted, but his boat was torpedoed and he drowned. My wife and I have been to Guernsey and visited the Occupation Museum, which is very moving.
