Excellent-Mark Rylance at his best.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Angels And Insects [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This film was a masterful piece of work. Mark Rylance's performance as William Adamson showed him to have reached the height of his acting career, but let's hope it still goes a bit higher! The film, although starting off a little odd, progressed into, some very sexy and erotic scenes. N.B. this film is not for the faint-hearted! A cleverly psychological thriller. I rented this from the local video shop because my surname is also Rylance! Kristin Scott Thomas' perfomance was equally good. Although some historians may have some objections to this look at sex in the Victorian era, I felt this, if better known could have been a blockbuster hit.
