As True to the Epic Novel as Possible
13 February 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Josef Conrad's epic novel set in a fictional South American Country is stunningly brought to life in this BBC production. The movie follows the novel quite closely, surprisingly - however, the acting comes off as cheezy at times. There are, however, some very noteworthy performances - Albert Finney is brilliant, as usual. And there are also some fine performances by Serena Scott Thomas, Brian Dennehy, Joaquim de Almeida, and Colin Firth. However, the cast is huge - as I'm sure the budget must have been limited for such a grand scale story. I must say that it came off quite grandly. I own the VHS, and have had the pleasure of seeing this visual treat many times.
