An enjoyable film


I enjoyed this movie and liked the performances by Redgrave and Fox and Thurman. The scenery of Italian lakeside was beautiful.

I did - on my honeymoon.

The area is truly charming and this wonderful films captures it beautifully. The story, characters and acting are superb and the film draws you along at a relaxed pace whilst still challenging your mind as it explores the complex relationships between the characters.

British storytelling and film making at its best.

I liove this film. I am confused about Miss Bently's wadrobe though. With the execption of the dress she wore when they went swimming her outfits look like they were purchased at Chico's in the early 90's. Granted I don't know everthing about 1930's fashion but I do know a great deal and have never seen clothes like that.

I liked this film except for Uma Thurman's acting. Although having some highlights, she was mostly far too over-the-top.

I realize I am responding to your comment nine years after it was posted, but I just saw this film and thought the same thing! I'm so puzzled by the odd wardrobe choices made for Ms. Redgrave! They were definitely from the wrong era and distracted me from trying to enjoy watching the film.

Juniper, I agree. The scenery was so much a part of what I enjoyed in this film, but the performances were fantastic. Redgrave is definitely one of my favorite actresses.

I love this movie. The acting was perfect and the scenery perfect. As I age, I do like to see films where women of a certain age come out the winners!
