    In my review of " The notebook" i said that a love story must be coherent, and i think that this movie is coherent and also realistic, a story of a poor guy who fell in love with a rich girl, it might sound like a cliche, but this movie is just different of every romantic movie with that theme, Dickens wrote a great story and Cuarón always find the way in his camera work to make you appreciate and get involve in the right moment.

    Hardly a real pip (indeed, it has been rendered Pip-less), but then this loosey-goosey adaptation isn't aimed at those of us with library cards.
  2. Cuadron, at the helm, wanted to pitch his film in a terrain accessible to modern sensibility yet different from what that sensibility is generally fed. And he might have succeeded, except for his casting. [2 March 1998, p. 26]

    Great Expectations has great style; that's not everything we want from the movies, but sometimes it's almost enough. [2 February 1998, p. 61]
