Product Description

Product Description

A National Geographic photographer (Clint Eastwood, who also directs) arrives in Madison County, Iowa, to cover a story about the Roseman Bridge. He stops to ask directions from a bored housewife (Meryl Streep) whose family are away, and so begins a romantic love affair.

From Amazon.co.uk

Some called it a snooze-fest, while others tearfully clutched their Kleenex. In any case, Clint Eastwood was an unusual and (as it turned out) perceptive choice to direct and costar in this lush adaptation of Robert James Waller's phenomenally bestselling novel. Meryl Streep costars as Francesca, the lonely Iowa farmer's wife who is instantly attracted to Robert (Eastwood), the photographer from National Geographic who is in the area to photograph the bridges along Iowa's rural roadways. The two fall in love while Francesca's husband and children are away at a county fair, but the story's passion and lasting appeal derive from their decision to part forever after just a few brief days of intimate connection. Superbly acted with an emphasis on quiet, graceful moments of tender revelation, the film builds to a crescendo of powerful and conflicting emotions. Like David Lean's Brief Encounter (to which it bears marked similarities), The Bridges of Madison County is destined to become one of the classic film love stories. --Jeff Shannon

This, quite simply, is one of the most heart-breaking films I have ever seen. This is a film for the more mature audience (not for people with short attention spans), whether you have experienced love or not this film will touch your soul. The mix of a beautiful story and superb acting (namely Streep and Eastwood) makes this a truely powerful film that will stay with you for a very long time. You go on a journey with the characters (whom we become to know throughout the film without really realising it) on a roller coaster of emotions and afterwards the intensity of the story leaves you feeling quite drained in a hopeful sort of way (if you're like me and can't make it to the end without crying). This story has passionate love, strong friendship, morals, values and beliefs - and above all this story is about life - decisions, sacrifices and emotion. This story is perfectly told and utterly absorbing (even better than the book). In fact, the film & characters are so real that when I visited the acutal film site I felt like Francesa Johnson had really lived there and that Robert Kincaid had driven there to find her. This is a very powerful film (not for the faint hearted, childish or shallow). This film, which will touch your life if you let it, has to be one of the most powerful, real, intense and passionate love-stories of our time. If you are in love with the idea of love then this is an absolute must-see film...but be warned, it will break your heart; when Robert Kincaid stands in the rain, well, it is absolutely soul-wrenching. This romantic but real film is a true master-piece.

It was a masterstroke to put two of the best actors around these days together in this good old fashioned romance. Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood (who also produces and directs) look so good together on screen. Of course, Meryl is made up to look a little dowdy, and perhaps Clint might look a little old for the part, but who cares? Their scenes together are so good, they make it look so natural. Meryl Streep plays Francesca a lonely and bored housewife who by chance meets Robert (Eastwood) a professional photographer who is commissioned by National Geographic Magazine to take pictures of various locations in Iowa. They develop a relationship which lasts for only four memorable days. Then, Robert moves on and Francesca is left with her memories which remain with her right until her death. The story of the romance is told through her diaries read by her grown up children who find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that their mother had been disloyal to their father. However, they come to realise that Francesca's love for Robert is one of those loves that happen to most of us during our lives, a short term love, which remains in memory. A fascinating film of human relationships. Enhanced by a superb music score, but lacking extras which is a shame. If you like good old fashioned romances, then pour yourself a drop of brandy, just sit back and enjoy.

I love movies. I love a movie that takes you on a journey and presents you with an emotional core which you can identify with. Blockbusters have their place but my preferred movie is one which has its roots firmly planted in some sort of reality. So you can imagine how delighted I was when The Bridges Of Madison arrived at cinemas in 1995.
Based on the famous but not all that great book by Robert James Waller- Bridges Of Madison County is a slow burning tale of a love that a small town cannot accept. But one which keeps on burning long after the principal characters have died.
Francesca Johnson (Meryl Streep) is an Italian American housewife. Her life is uneventful. She cleans, cooks and reads but wants more from life. Her passions are awakened when her husband and two children go away on a short holiday. Robert Kincaid (Clint Eastwood) an enigmatic photographer from National Geographic magazine pulls up outside her house asking for directions. From that point on Francesca discovers her desire for life and unearths feelings that she never knew she had.
The film then explores the dilemma for both characters. Over four days Francesca and Robert embark on a passionate affair. She is attracted to his lust for life and the fact that he has travelled the world. He is attracted to Francesca's worldly mind and the fact that she seems to have so much going for her beneath the fascade of household duties and her overall aim to please her family.
Still awake? Well, although the film may not sound emotionally involving- believe you me it truly is. Meryl Streep brings emotion, depth and a sense of reality to a very challenging role. Francesca has a great sense of humour which Robert uncovers.

This is quite simply one of the best films I have ever seen. Definitely up among my top five ever. The quality of the acting from Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood is just faultless. They look so good together on screen, it is hard to believe they are only acting. You can literally feel the intensity of the characters' love for each other and the heartbreaking decison they have to face, to either stay together and be true to themselves, or separate and go back to their individual lives, and therefore put the feelings of others before their own happiness.

I agree with the previous reviewer, in that it is one of those rare movies that is actually better than the book. I have watched it many times, with the kleenex at the ready of course. It is simply perfect for a wet Sunday afternoon.

If you love weepies, you will adore this.
