A Masterpiece with Lee Remick - pure and simple!, 10 December 2000
Author: Henryk von Babenberg from Hamburg, Germany

This film is a masterpiece as are all of the Merchant/Ivory's films. The absorbing story and adaptation, the fantastic actors - notably the immensely beautiful Lee Remick - and the eye for detail makes this a unique experience and may be watched again and again.
