Very fine and haunting drama
25 September 2003 | by (Bucks County, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

A very clever dramatization inspired by the classic book "An Adventure" (first published in 1910) which recounts the paranormal events experienced by two proper English ladies in the gardens of Versailles one hot August afternoon in 1901. This film does a nice job of dramatising this famous tale, combining elements of the real life author's lives and the events recounted in their book with some well-written fictional drama. And the scenes of the "haunting" itself are both eerie in a subtle way and convincing (nearly every element of this well-known "haunting" is worked into the screenplay).

The fine actresses Wendy Hiller and Hannah Gordon bring great conviction to their portrayals of two strong-minded women whose relationship grows and deepens through the course of the film. A fine period production design adds to the quality of this film.
