Beautifully made, 11 January 2007
Author: christopher-underwood from Greenwich - London

It seems I thought even more of this when first seen and I felt it, 'Absolutely sublime.' and 'Faultless' but now I feel maybe 'Venus in Furs' is even better. Beautifully made with sumptuous set design and costumerie and performances including a menacing one from Jack Taylor, are all fine. Featuring one of Bruno Nicolai's better scores this maintains an eerie sexiness throughout and thanks to Christopher Lees' central performance as narrator/De Sade all is most satisfactory. I think on this second viewing I was left feeling that it could either have been a little tougher and/or a little sexier but maybe it just caught me in the wrong mood and another viewing will have me purring with delight as before.
