Informative and entertaining - Viceroy's House review by CSF

Spoiler Alert
14/03/2018

I loved the film. I think it makes considerable effort to be fair. Both parties made mistakes, the problems to solve were so difficult that three centuries are not enough to achieve a better civilization, not even 20 centuries...

Religion and fanaticism are usually generated by poverty. The people who try to be 'human' are crushed by the fear or the ambition of the others. Nothing new, we all have been through that situation. The actors were playing right, the story is very convincing and help to understand this part of History. Only films can make mistakes visible and understood.

The film is very exciting because, all along, it makes me wonder how I would have managed, what solution I would have chosen, what I would have done or not done. The love story in the film shows that Romeo and Juliet will exist and repeat for ever in any civilization.

Lightweight - Viceroy's House review by IG

Not a bad effort, but, does have it's moments as in the movie Titanic where fiction gets in the way of historical fact. Hugh Bonneville for example seems more like Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey than a plausible Mountbatten, he is just a bit too nice. That said, the film scores well visually and is interesting to watch, with some good individual performances: Good but not outstanding.
