Trivia:
This was a long cherished project for David Lean. He was due to commence filming on 1991 but he fell ill and died soon afterwards. It is probably one of the most celebrated scripts never to be filmed, and the cast would have included Dennis Quaid, Isabella Rosselini, Liam Neeson and George Corraface, with possible involvement by Peter O'Toole, Paul Scofield and Marlon Brando.See more »

As True to the Epic Novel as Possible, 13 February 2000
Author: A. Casalino (vampy29@hotmail.com) from Chicago, USA

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.
