The best screen version of Stendhal' s novel
15 October 2004 | by rossi_20012001See all my reviews

A really great presented point of view, very strong role for Kim Rossi Stewart as Julien Sorel, but anyway his character was shown in a milder way than the way presented in the book, where he was more superficial and was empty for real feelings. Matilde in the book was much more spoilt and had no feelings for Julien, for her it was just a game to show her father that she's in control of her life, anything she did in the book was wilfully with no affection, on the other hand Louise Renal was ready to sacrifice anything for him and to help him achieve anything he wanted, his love for her was fake in the beginning, he only wanted to see how far can go a woman from the high society which he always hated but always wanted to be a part of.
