I remember watching Comrades many years ago, sitting spellbound as thestory slowly unfolded. I particularly appreciated the long slow"mug-shots" of the characters, which stayed with me for yearsafterwards. The story of the Tolpuddle martyrs was new to me, althoughI remember hearing the name in my history classes. What develops in thefilm is the story of an early attempt at democracy and human rights,that ends with deportation to Australia. Even there the early spirit oftrade-unionism emerges: United We Stand, Divided we Fall.

What a shame that the film seems to be currently unavailable on eitherVHS or DVD. Who can I write to about this?

A horrid experienceReviewed bymail-568-178564Vote: 1/10

I saw this film when it was shown at Purbeck Film Festival in 2002. It was introduced by a friend of the director and there was a display of memorabilia associated with the making of the film.

The film was shown in two parts with an interval between the parts. My friends and I decided that we had seen enough by the interval and left the cinema (along with many others). This was the most boring film I have ever seen and the cast, excellent actors as they are, was not able to rescue it.

Purbeck Film Festival continue to show the film - it does depict a local event - Tolpuddle is less than 20 mile from Purbeck. It has been reported to me that people still leave at the interval!

This is one of the greatest underrated epics of Brtish cinema.

Not only does it chart a pivotal event in the development of tradeunionism but one of the few films portrays the harshness of theAustralian exile system.

Everyone looked like they wanted to make this film and excel in it. Thenarrative slow burning but riveting, pausing to allow the audience totaste life of that period.

We see much of the wretchedness of late Victorian urban life on thescreen but this early rural period is often pasteurised like aConstable painting or concentrates on the upper classes.

Bill Douglas owes more to Ken Loach than Merchant Ivory.

I believe this film was made by Channel 4 but it is never shown and orhas a DVD release.

If anyone who has any experience of Channel 4 , I would be interestedto know what they have against this film.
