This is the finest of all Merchant/Ivory adaptations of the novels by Henry James. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala has brilliantly developed the screenplay which splendidly defines the major themes and narrative concerns of the complex novel. This is not 'entertainment' for the simple-minded, but a feast for those whose consciousness demands serious visual/literary engagement. Truly, the term 'masterpiece' applies here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
