Critic Reviews for The Booksellers
In style it's conventional, but it bounces along, with the brisk editing and David Ullmann's jazzy score setting a fusty yet lively tone not far removed from the films of Woody Allen.
Unputdownable documentary that evokes the thrill of reading preloved pages and reveals that a passion for collecting is not just a hoarding instinct, but a way to preserve and share culture.
Overall, this is the kind of documentary you might find mid-week on BBC4, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Expect to be beguiled if nothing else.
Indifferent to the siren call of computer screens, these characters really do stand out from the crowd.
