Under Milk Wood (Dylan Thomas) (DVD)
This screen adaptation of Dylan Thomas's story of a Welsh village is narrated by Richard Burton.
Under Milk Wood is the Dylan Thomas' magnum opus which carries the double legacy of the author's extensive work for radio medium for which he had an almost intuitive grasp and his skill and ability as a poet.
The play describes the thoughts of a stranger (Richard Burton), who whilst wandering through a small Welsh village seems to know the intimate details of the life of a selection of the town inhabitants. Described in poetic terms we learn that most of the inhabitants are very strange people indeed we are told about their innermost desires and thoughts.
Under Milk Wood is a sensitive, often comic, examination of Welsh life in which the people are viewed as being particularly blessed.
This is a must have DVD for any Dylan Thomas fan and lover of great literature.
