He pulls out an ochre colored dress with red satin trim which Mme de Rênal refuses saying that it would be "far too ostentatious". In part three, the same dress is worn by a guest getting from a buffet table at a party in Paris. See more »

Entertaining period drama
2 May 2002 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews



I'm not usually attracted to BBC dramas. That tends to be something I find more suitable for my mother, but being a recent Ewan McGregor fan, I was intrigued by this series. I find it quite entertaining with excellent acting. The story is about Julien Sorel's journey through his young adulthood. He goes through his life imagining himself being mentored by Napoleon, and he "conquers" his love interests as the world presents challenges for Julien's love affairs. Alice Krige and McGregor have a wonderful chemistry together. I like the tension in Rachel Weisz's and McGregor's chemistry because it alarms the audience of the danger this woman could lead to. I enjoyed this love affair show more than most because it also makes aside comments on religion, politics, and upper class versus lower class. I would definitely recommend this movie even to people who don't believe they could enjoy a "costume drama."
