Excellent Adaptation of a Great Story
23 February 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A superior production. Stands up well, even compared to the classic Hitchcock film taken from the same work. More faithful to the original story than the film, most particularly in the wonderful, unglamorous portrayal of the second Mrs. DeWinter by Joanna David. Jeremy Brett's Maxim is brittle and at times nasty, as this character should be, but he also conveys the complex, wounded interior that has produced this outer man. Anna Massey is perfectly frightening as the imperious Mrs. Danvers, subtly but constantly threatening. The set design is gorgeous. Definitely recommended for fans of the book.
