QMR: tipping the velvet

IMDB photo

Tipping the Velvet: This three part series follows the life of a young lesbian in 19th century England as she struggles to find a relationship and career. Based on the novel by Sarah Waters.

Country: UK, 2002

Original Language: English

Rating: 4/5

Available for purchase on Amazon.

Zavi thinks: ‘Made for television’ movies are a totally different thing when done by the BBC rather than Hallmark or Lifetime.  This film is a fascinating fantasy trip and is very well made.  The first time I watched it was quite late at night, and I had decided I would just watch one segment – yeah right.  Even though each part is an hour long, I just couldn’t stop watching.  Each of the three sections have a totally different feel to them, ranging from light to dark to surreal, yet they fit together quite well.

Panda thinks: Weird at times and somewhat dark, this film contained a lot of elements that I wasn’t expecting, such as BDSM.  I was very satisfied with the way the film was resolved in the end, however.
