Germany released, Blu-Ray/Region B DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio ), German ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), German ( Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio ), German ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Alexandre Dumas fis first dramatized his own novel La Dame aux Camelias in 1852. Before the century was out, the work had been transformed by Giuseppe Verdi into the opera La Traviata; before the next century was out, the Dumas book had been made into no fewer than 25 films. The 1984 TV-movie adaptation, titled Camille like most of the others including the first film, way back in 1907, stars Greta Schacchi as Marguerite, the popular Parisian courtesan who is wooed by innocent young Armand Colin Firth. She is willing to give up her libertine lifestyle for Armand, but is gently convinced by the boy's father John Gielgud that such a union would be impossible. She renounces Armand, but he returns to her side, just as she is dying of consumption. Blanche Hanalis' adaptation of the Dumas novel takes a franker approach to the subject matter than the more familiar 1937 filmization with that other Greta Garbo, and also manages to insert a soupcon of feminism. Filmed in Paris, the 1984 Camille was originally offered as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special. ...Camille (1984) ( Hallmark Hall of Fame: Camille ) (Blu-Ray)

5.0 out of 5 stars Colin Firth in Camille 28 April 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful adaptation 10 Aug 2013
By sacha
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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!

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lady of the Camellias 6 Sep 2012
By D. Madsen - 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. At under $10.00, it's an inexpensive gift to yourself.
