This review is from: Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I was extremely happy to order this new version of Rebecca; the first reason is that I already new the book and first Hitchcock's version, and I wondered if the second one would be as interesting as the first. I confess I was not disappointed.
The second one was that my choice was guided by the choice of Charles Dance as Max de Winter; indeed this wonderful actor is too often restricted to acting evil or dangerous characters whereas he is surprisngly convincing in the part of an attractive gentleman; pity he didn't play that part more often; his face and eyes are remarkably mobile and expressive. Emilia Fox (I suppose she is the daughter of James Fox, is also remarkable in the role of an ingenuous young girl.
Everything in the film pleases me, music, setting, characters...
I strongly recommend it to the lovers of art and literature
