The "Raphael drawings" that Adam Verver shows Charlotte are obvious imitations. The figures are outlined with dark, bold lines, which was not the style of Raphael or, indeed, any of his contemporaries. See more »

This film is about the complicated love life between four people bound by blood, marriage and lust.
The plot is rather simple and plainly told, but it is made up for by the lush costumes and visuals. It is delightful to see so many extravagant period dresses in each scene, I felt I was watching a fashion show! Uma Thurman's dresses are the most remarkable, her peacock costume and the white curly hat stand out from the crowd. Her heart wrenching performance proves she has great acting skills to parallel her extraordinary beauty.
Scenes in "The Golden Bowl" are thoughtfully constructed and thoughtfully decorated. The palace rooms are maximally decorated with flowers, paintings and sculptures; providing a visual feast of luxury and grandeur.
"The Golden Bowl" is well worth watching just for the grand sets and lavish costumes.
