beautiful
11 April 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is easy to have high expectations about the adaptation of a well known novel. and it is more easy to say a bitter verdict about it. but this film is real beautiful. and inspired option for a decent and seductive adaptation. the cast, the cinematography, the story as a veil, the landscapes , the performances. all admirable for a TV film. because it is the first fact who remains real important about "Camille" . it is a TV film, with each sin and virtue of the this category. and the work of Greta Scacchi, who gives an inspired Marguerite, sir John Gielgut, the so young Colin Firth as Armand are virtues of a film like a spring morning.
