Watch out: in these adulterous times, you might still be shocked!!!
10 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

why go to the bother, you think? Hey, the looks that old lady could give even when she was felled by Parkinson's Disease, almost killed: she knew the couple's horrible secret and was caught in the prison of her body. However, the wonderful thing that Zola does is to have everything play out in front of her, so that she actually is given the merciful gift of having justice done. However, I couldn't stand that wimpy Camille either, and wonder why the girl didn't run away, but then that was pre-feminist advances. How lucky we are. If we don't like it their way, we can take the highway and get along better off.

You might think that Therese turning into a hussy is far fetched, but I've known women made mad by their husband's adulteries that went mad in the same manner. The old lady's over-solicitous treatment of the son and the 2nd class treatment of the wife makes you ache for her, even as she wildly cavorts on the bed above her mother-in-law. Truly some sexy scenes!!

But what's this? A review I read of Alan Rickman in this movie indicated you saw the red-headed model. I never did in my DVD set. Somebody get on the forums and let me know why I never say it. Did it just not make it to the DVD set? Rickman at his cutest, with all those silly curls. And you get flashbacks of 'dorian Grey' from the scene in the artist's garret. Watch this one, and switch back and forth to Sharpe's Rifles to see Brian Cox age.
