    A movie with exquisite period detail. [8 Apr 1994]

    More than a great love story. It's both a lighthearted and deeply impassioned inspirational lesson about life. [4 April 1986]

    A Room with a View enjoys its storytelling so much that I enjoyed the very process of it. The story moved slowly, it seemed, for the same reason you try to make ice cream last: because it's so good.

    It's hard to believe A Room With a View cost so little; the costumes and sets are dazzling and the acting is superb--from two-time Oscar-winner Smith to the smallest role, there's not a false note.
  6. It's all rather amusing, but after awhile you tire of all the perfect little nuances about characters who seem like prototypes for a certain type of Victorian novel. [6 Mar 1986, p.23(E)]

    Though it's meant as a droll comedy of manners, what emerges is mincing, crabbed, and petty.
