A fine but flawed adaptation,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Month In The Country [DVD] (DVD)
A wonderful evocation of how sensitive and intelligent souls cope with impossible demands - the trauma of the Great War, bleak marriage and life, and love which haunts or plays with each of them in different ways. It is, however a great pity that the scene in which Birkin meets ex-sergeant Milburn, which in the book adds a further dimension to our sympathy for Moon, is turned into a particularly nasty incident. I can't understand why the director did this - maybe to add a late 20th century comment on his perception of the view of homosexuality in the early 20's?
