A visual feast, 8 Jan 2008
I saw this film at an arts film venue in Bristol and was kept gripped by the plot, characters and filming. The film is faithful to the book and is beautifully crafted with careful attention to details such as the period costumes and with stunning shots of the countryside and landscape throughout the seasons. The nudity and sex is, of course, present, but is very tastefully done. It is a relatively long film but such cinema craftsmanship makes it well worth watching.
Films like this only come along once in a while.
