Format: DVD
This movie exceeded my expectations. Both actors are so young and innocent looking. Marvelous cast. I also have this on DVD. I watch this movie every week - sometimes more often - if I am in a down mood or don't feel well - this is always the movie I want to watch. It is such a touching love story - but unfortunately love cannot always conquere everything. So it is lovely, funny, happy and sad. So well done by all.

really really really awful. If you want to watch an adaptation of this novel the garbo movie is still fabulous. This has a wonderful cast completely wasted, dreadful script and direction, tedious and cliched, laughable, risible, deserves to be lost for all time.

Better Colin Firth Movies Available 11 Jan 2011
By KN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Compared to other Colin Firth movies, this movie was very flat. I love period movies, and comparing to the likes of Jane Austin, this one pales in comparison. I had higher hopes for this film so was disappointed when I finished watching it.
The character of Camille was not well formed. She gave a sub-par performance. Firth seemed stilted and robotic at times.
The story line was a good one, and the potential for it being much more fleshed out would have made it much more endearing. So, it left me feeling like I wasted 100 minutes of my day.
So, chalk it up to one not so hot purchase.
I'll loan it to my daughter, with whom I LOVE to watch movies like this, but with a forwarning not to expect too much.
I would recommend saving the $$$ and watching Pride and Prejudice again!

Made for TV Movie 2 Feb 2011
By Kadie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I tried to find information on this movie prior to purchasing the DVD but didn't find much. This is a 'made for TV movie' which means the budget wasn't that great and it shows. I purchased it for the great cast but even they could not elevate the quality of the production.

Super Love story 5 Dec 2010
By propdevel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Beautiful love storey with Greta Scacchi and Colin Firth. They work beautifully together and the film is a delight to watch. Its a simple story yet tragic...

Great to see an very under valued Greta Scacchi work as she is a class actress.

The Lady of the Camellias 6 Sep 2012
By Avid reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
(Spoilers ahead) I have waited for many years to see this on DVD and was elated to see it released in 2011. I agree that the film did not fully exploit the talents of the superb cast, but the costumes and sets are well done, and--most of all--the story is true the fictionalized life of Marie Duplessis (by Alexandre Dumas the younger), the Parisian courtesan who died of tuberculosis in the early 1840s at the age of 23. (For opera lovers, this same story was turned into "La Traviata.")

The reviewers who were "shocked" by the "immorality" evidently needed a lesson in history. This film is a period piece. The protagonist Marguerite was a courtesan--essentially a high-class prostitute. What did they expect? She was a "companion" for men of the upper-crust whose time was paid for in money, jewelry and other expensive gifts.

As a made-for-TV film of the 1980s, the budget (as mentioned) is not as lavish as a film from the silver screen, but the film still conveys the life of the aristocracy (the young lover was a duke and the son of a duke) and the demimonde in Paris of the mid-19th century.

If you are a fan of literature of the Romantic period or enjoy costumed films, you will enjoy this.

Right after Austen 25 Feb 2011
By fairlind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I loved this movie. It's true that it doesn't quite reach the Jane Austen heights, but then in my book nothing does. This was not meant to be a happy, witty movie. It's a soulful, melancholy film that somehow reminds me of Haagen Dazs ice cream. Slow and rich, meant to be savored.
