A very difficult task led to a good end.
25 August 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

A good film. Of course it cannot replace the actual reading of Proust.Nevertheless the makers of this 4 and a half hour movie-series have done an excellent job in giving back the atmosphere of the some 2500 odd pages of the books. The scenery is authentic en well photographed. The characters are faithful to the books. It is however evident that the elaborate and brilliant work of Proust is nearly impossible to render. But isn't this always the case in filming a book? The famous elaborate style of Proust is evidently nearly impossible to render in a movie.

Some (minor) points of critic: The 'narrator' is perhaps a trifle too passive.Also the scenes at the s- m brothel are too long and perhaps too explicit given the age of 16 for the viewers.

Again it was an excellent reminder for me who has read the books two times.('He who hasn't read Proust two times hasn't read Proust at all')
