If ever there was a writer I thought unfilmable Virginia Woolf is that writer. If ever there was a book that I thought unfilmable Mrs Dalloway is that book. So to see this splendid "reading" of that masterpiece is a joy. The casting is perfect, Vanessa Redgrave brings the right dignity to Clarissa's character as no other actor could. The book is basically the inner dialogue of a woman preparing for a party and her own mortality. The film loses nothing of this intimacy and gives each viewer the opportunity of seeing into this character without being too intrusive. This is a rare film which influenced the more recent "The Hours" for obvious reasons

Virginia Woolf's novel "Mrs. Dalloway" examines one day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, in which the title character prepares for a party and looks back on the point in her life when she choose Richard Dalloway over Peter Walsh. Meanwhile, the mentally ill war veteran Septimus Warren Smith spends his last day on earth. The action of the novel exists primarily in the consciousness of the characters, for the story itself is essentially plotless and written in the stream-of-consciousness style of James Joyce. Although written in the omniscient third-person voice, Woolf manages to enter the consciousness of her various characters, who are not as unconnected as they might seem to be, and reveal their feelings.
Translating this novel to the screen requires that it be done by those who have a strong understanding and affection for the authors and her characters. Vanessa Redgrave is clearly one of those people and she commissioned Eileen Atkins to write the script so that she could play the title character. Atkins is a Woolf scholar who not only played the author in a one-woman stage piece but also wrote "Vita and Virginia," in which she and Redgrave played Woolf and her lover Vita Sackville-West. Atkins chooses to allow us only into the inner thoughts of Mrs. Dalloway, using voice-over narration to reveal the thoughts that she would never speak out loud. Those who have read the novel might not enjoy the film more than those who have not, since there are always limitations with bringing any literary masterpiece to the screen, but they will certainly understand it more, especially the first part of the film.
A strength of this 1997 film is how easily we accept that Natascha McElhone as the young Clarissa grows up to be Vanessa Redgrave's Mrs. Dalloway.

Beautifully crafted, shot and directed, this is a superb little picture, starring an excellent Vanessa Redgrave and Natascha McElhone. Its a witty, delicate and emotional day in the life of a 1920's society lady, reminiscing about the days when she were younger. Thoughtful, intelligient drama. Highly recommended (especially for someone who feels they want to watch something easy, enjoyable and quiet to watch).

This is a lovely movie and I highly recommend it to any Vanessa or Virginia fans. It is almost as if Virginia Woolf wrote the part for Vanessa Redgrave - brilliant casting. Beautifully filmed and costumed with every detail accurate. Well worth adding to my Vanessa collection.

I came to this film from a lecture on the Western Cannon. I am still in the middle of reading the "Mrs. Dalloway Reader." I thought I would take a break and watch the movie.

Adapted from the novel by Virginia Woolf, is a screen play by Eileen Atkins. A lot of the dialog is directly from the book. Of course some things have to be different just to turn the story into a movie instead of a lecture.

The story is a lot more complete and in-depth than I can reveal in a short review. However it is London, summer 1923. We take part in a day in Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway's life when she (Vanessa Redgrave) is about to have a party and meet old friends. Here through a series of flashbacks she contemplates on the choices she made in life.

On a side note, with all the different major actors in the movie one has a tendency to think "Now where have I seen him/her act before?" Luckily everyone plays his/her part so well that you soon forget the actor and empathize with the character.

The only thing that really bothered me was watching Evans (Richard Bradshaw) being dispatched in Septimus Warren Smith's (Rupert Graves) mind. They called PTSD shell-shock. I understand that it was a quite necessary part of the movie. I never had PTSD, but being surrounded by it, this came too close to home.

After seen the movie "The Hours" (Nicole Kidman received an Oscar for Best Female Actor), based partly on Virginia Woolf's novel "Mrs dalloway", I was curious about the original story of "Mrs Dalloway" which was brought on the silver screen in 1997 as an British production with(Dutch)director Marleen Gorris, who won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language movie(in Dutch)in 1995 with "Antonia's Line" aka Antonia (in the Netherlands).
The movie is a wonderful experience in this time of fast speed action and flashing editing. The story with beautiful Vanessa Redgrave as Mrs Dalloway, lingers on with fine locations,houses,interiors and costumes. Also Michael Kitchen, one of my favorite actors, plays an impressive role as the now middle-aged boyfriend from their youth, who she did not marry.
A must for aficionados of screen versions of British famous novels!
Enjoy!
