It's been a year or so since I saw this movie one night on tv, and I can't get it out of my head. I'm a big fan of romantic period dramas, and this movie was amazingly romantic. I didn't find it boring or drawn out the way some films of the genre tend to be. It was captivating and interesting. I found myself intrigued and allured by the actors. I could almost feel the emotions.. the lovelorn angst, the passion, the anger, etc. The character of Julien Sorel (played by Kim Rossi Stuart) was charming, mysterious and attractive, and it was impossible to look away from the screen during his scenes. I loved this movie and give it a 10. Hopefully it will air on tv again soon.
