The Reviews for 84 Charing Cross Road (1987) 720p

Simply the best.Reviewed byvertigo_14Vote: 10/10

84 Charing Cross Road is one of my favorite movies. Based on the memoirs of Helene Hanff (the book contains the letters from which they read throughout the film), this is the story of a single New York woman named Helene Hanff (Anne Bancroft) who builds a forty-year friendship with some people who work in a bookstore in England. The movie begins during WWII as Helene, a writer, is searching for out-of-print books and, frustrated at the poor selection in the city's bookstores, starts writing letters to the Marx brother's bookstore in England. Through her letters, she not only becomes a frequent customer, but eventually, becomes quite close with all of the bookstore's employees. And through their letters, they share experiences over the years, which the viewer witnesses through a juxtasposition of two different cultures: American and British.

I like the technique used in this film. The interaction between Helene and her British friends occurs only through letters, so rather than have the characters write a letter and then dub what is written, eventually, the characters just face the camera and say what they would have written, with the camera cutting back and forth for each others response at times as though we suddenly become the recipient of their conversations.

The film also has a wonderful cast with Anne Bancroft as Helene, Anthony Hopkins as the generous Frank P. Doel, Judi Dench as his wife, and Mercedes Ruehl as Helene's neighbor. It is a wonderful story.

84 Charing Cross Road is a wonderful enchanting film about thedifferences and similarities between the Brits and the New Yorkers overthe years. Helene Hanff really was a special writer. She gave anidentity to 84 Charing Cross Road to last a lifetime. Her letterwriting relationship between a bookstore and herself is one oflegendary stories to become part of London and New York. Sadly, shedied 5 years ago. I am sure that 84 Charing Cross Road will alwaysremember the writer, Helene Hanff, who inspired such a legacy. Anywaythe film has a wonderful cast like Anne Bancroft who is ageless in therole. Sir Anthony Hopkins as the bookseller. Dame Judi Dench as hiswife and Maurice Denham in a supporting role. Also, I have been toLondon three more times since I wrote this review and sadly this time,I made the effort to visit 84 Charing Cross Road, sorry folks, it's aPizza Hut and I had dinner there tonight anyway. THere is no plaque. Istill think Anne Bancroft was superb now that she's gone. So hasMaurice Denham since I last wrote this review. God Bless them whereverthey are.

A Quiet GemReviewed byMISSMOOHERSELFVote: 8/10

The British are known for movies that can tear your heart out without excessive emoting. "84 Charing Cross Road" is one such picture. It's been on many, many times and I know my mother loved this movie but I never saw it, who knows why. But having "discovered" Dame Judi Dench, who has a somewhat minor part, I wanted to see her in this movie. Well, I was mesmerized! There was no "snap and pop" here; just the quiet story of a book lover and a bookseller who live on 2 different continents and who are total opposites (or so it seems) but who form a friendship through letters --- what today's youngsters would call snail mail. She's a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker with a New York accent as thick as a deli sandwich. He's a dyed-in-the-wool Englishman whose accent isn't as thick but who is British through and through. Yet they both share a passion for books. This gentle true story, based on Helene Hanff's book, is told mainly through their correspondence and what a terrific correspondence it was.

Letter-writing, unfortunately, is a lost art. As convenient as Email is, it's not quite the same as a good, old-fashioned letter. This movie reminded me of that and of the 17-year correspondence I shared with my best friend (he has since died). I'm told I have a talent for letter-writing and I have 2 friends with whom I share this talent. I used to think those friends should get a computer but now I see I was wrong. Email is expedient but letter-writing is so much more long-lasting.

One of the reasons I stayed with the picture was one scene: Helene goes to the movies (remember, this was 1950) and what are they playing? My all-time favorite movie, "Brief Encounter." I couldn't turn away after that and I'm glad I stayed with it. This is one movie I definitely will add to my DVD and/or VHS collection. It's a keeper for sure.
