5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic!, 13 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Rebecca [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
This review relates to the 1997 film starring Charles Dance and Emilia Fox. It is totally puzzling why most of the other reviews concern the original version, but never mind!

I borrowed this from a library, but was so impressed I have bought a copy for myself. Charles Dance is superb as the brooding, tortured aristocrat, Maxim de Winter, who attempts to find love and contentment with his second wife (Emilia Fox) after the tragic loss of his first spouse, the much admired and beautiful Rebecca. His charming, but shy, new wife struggles to cope with the demands of her new role, a situation made worse by the constant interference of the obsessive housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (terrific portrayal by Diana Rigg) whose devotion to her first mistress reaches beyond the grave!

A terrific supporting cast includes Geraldine James, Timothy West and Faye Dunaway. Some remakes are a total disappointment, but this is pure class and the scenery is absolutely stunning. Highly recommended to all!

Did you read the whole review? The reviewer makes concrete comparisons between the three versions in order to help those who have seen the other two to decide whether to buy this one.
