A rapturous romance that overflows with doomed tragic passion. One may cynically denounce the movie as selling catholicism thru sex or vice versa, but it works. I was engaged with the emotions throughout, enticed by the cat-n-mouse game A rapturous romance that overflows with doomed tragic passion. One may cynically denounce the movie as selling catholicism thru sex or vice versa, but it works. I was engaged with the emotions throughout, enticed by the cat-n-mouse game among the lovers, and deeply impressed by its revelation and climax, a kind of spiritual orgasm. I could have done less with watching Fiennes's bare buttocks or Julianne Moore's naked bod which is becoming a boring staple as were Greta Scacchi's boobs in the 80s. When guys get tired of watching certain females nude, it really means enough already. Baring one's boobs or crotch is NOT the same as baring one's soul(but then try telling that to Harvey Keitel of late). Directed with great finesse, a truly fine adaptation of literary classic. Expand

The war is raging, the world's in turmoil, but these people are off on their little side trip. I bet that happens a lot. Nothing memorable, nothing objectionable.

really good romance movie (don't know how it compares to the book though). the acting (really great performance by Ian Hant as Mr. Parkis), writing, directing was really good, but the editing was really flawed (imo). and a movie like thisreally good romance movie (don't know how it compares to the book though). the acting (really great performance by Ian Hant as Mr. Parkis), writing, directing was really good, but the editing was really flawed (imo). and a movie like this would rely on good editing, it was something hard to establish what was the past and what was the present (but after a while you can figure it out). but overall a great movie, 9.7 Expand
