Storyline

When Isobel Hetherington and her three young daughters take up their seaside residence in the hot summer of 1887, life seems idyllic. But the arrival of Phillip Wilson Steer for his annual painting visit launches a chain of events that will change their lives forever. Overcome by his first sight of Isobel, Steer immediately decides to capture her on canvas - and as the painting grows, so does their love for each other. But jealousy and tragedy eventually force them to confront reality. Written by Anonymous

This film like not many other films has moved me to tears. The blending of moods and visuals is stunning and above all refined. It never crosses the line of being a tearjerker,yet it has all the

ingredients of it. Especially the music is so haunting that upon this day i can hum it in my mind, though it has been some 10 years since last seeing it.

I'm looking forward owning it on DVD when it is released on that format. The scene in which the village-fair is crowned by a fireworks which the main characters view sitting besides each other is superb, and the acting is topnotch for the withheld sense of longing and isolation. A great movie.
