It's my own fault. I didn’t pay enough attention to the cover which states proudly, “A must-see for fans of Downton Abbey”. I didn’t like that and I cannot like this. I like always to say something positive about any film because film-making is a creative activity and creators deserve our encouragement but I am afraid I can’t beyond saying we get just perhaps a hint of what might have been in the atmospheric party and pub scenes. They’re put together in a lively enough way.

This awfully slow and ponderous film has for me many problems. One that stands out is a lead actor playing Munnings who lacks any discernible screen presence and for whom I felt no empathy at all. Sorry. Another is an unusual problem to find in a film. It is drenched and dripping and soaked in incidental music. We the viewers are rarely allowed to watch it for a moment without an accompanying score instructing us how to feel about what we are seeing on screen. It was an exhausting experience.

All in all I came away from viewing this knowing more than I knew before about the life of A.J. Munnings and that’s about it. If that is YOUR aim and your bag you might get something out of this movie. Good luck.

All the actors did their very best with the script. I can not understand why she would accept a marriage proposal when she had feelings for Dan Stevens character of which he played very well.
I thought their was a hint that there was something wrong with the female lead. Was she all there mentally. She took poison on her wedding night and it was not exactly a happy marriage. I have never heard of Manning before.
The Cornish landscape was breathtaking. Here is another example how a love interest ruined 2 lives and a great friendship.
I found the portrayal by Emily Browning strange. It was as if she had no will. Bursting onto the scene and seemingly having feeling for the captain but marrying the other ????

I preferred the book by Jonathan Smith - see elsewhere on my Profile page. This had been simplified to just the main story but in fact the book was much more interesting.

I knew very little about Munnings before watching this film. It's heartbreaking. The main characters are very well acted, and the scenery is stunning. It made me take a trip to see his paintings for real.

This is a most beautifully made film. The Photography is superb, as is the music. My father, Capt. Gilbert Evans R.E., was definitely in love with Florence (or Blote as she was known). My mother who was twenty two years younger than my father, was only nine in 1914 when the final events took place but she told my brother and me that my father had always told her before their marriage in 1932, that he had been in love with Florence and that there had been this awful tragedy. It must be remembered that the film is made from an historical novel; the line that runs through it is true, but inevitably some of the detail is fiction. The artists party at the end where Alfred Munnings called Florence a whore definitely happened, although in reality there is no evidence that she was pregnant. Cornwall comes over very strongly in the film although it is a pity that some of the filming could not have been done at Lamorna in the cove: the problem was that the cove no longer looks as it did in 1914: it now has two enormous car parks and modern buildings. My father was a classic Edwardian gentleman who was loved by all who knew him and Dan Stevens portrayed his character beautifully. All the parts are so well acted which shows the depth of their understanding of the story.
My wife and I and one of my grandsons had the privilege of seeing some of the filming done at Prussia cove.
