5.0 out of 5 stars Still glorious in the Happier Year
Sadly, there are many occasions on which well-meaning film-makers have quite frankly butchered good books, where their metamorphosis onto the big screen has not gone smoothly. I must say, however, that James Ivorys' adaptation of E.M Forsters' classic novel, Maurice, is a welcome exception.
Ivory captures the essence of this book superbly, in terms of character,...

3.0 out of 5 stars No subtitles!
"Maurice" is a great movie dealing with homosexuality and class distinction in the early 20th century. It has a lot of beautiful scenes, although they could've made it a bit shorter.

I've wanted to buy this film on DVD for ages but I must say I'm really disappointed with this certain edition (Merchant Ivory Collection). It has a lot of nice extra features, but...

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy, 19 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Maurice [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Beautifully executed film on what can be an awkward subject. While it shares a lot of its cast with "Room With a View", it does not have that film's whimsical quality; but then the subject is somewhat more serious. What "Maurice" does bring home rather strongly is just how rigid the class system was in Edwardian England and how dangerous it was to a bit different. If I have a criticism of the film, at 134 minutes it was perhaps a bit long. The cast is excellent. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate Merchant Ivory, 9 Feb. 2009

This is a deeply felt, moving and tragic tale of unrequited love coupled with a fascinating look at the repression suffered by those whose sexual preferences were not the norm of the day. Interesting to see the promise of a young Hugh Grant, fighting to be "normal" against his own instincts. Fine acting, very British, vintage Merchant Ivory. Invokes compassion and absorbs with its passionately realized relationships.
