and an unrequited love swallowed by major historic events
on 4 October 2015
The subject matter - a gilded family doomed, and an unrequited love swallowed by major historic events, is a great opportunity for a film maker.
When it was originally released this seemed beautiful, sad, and memorable. The story still stands up, but unfortunately the film has not stood the test of time very well, and now seems clunky and dated. I would have preferred to keep my original memories of the film.
