Beautifully made Jane Campion film. Quiet and reflective rather than exploitative of viewer's base emotions. For the thoughtful person appreciative of artistic film making.

Only a true snob would not love this movie. The pastoral scenes alone are worth the experience. Glorious costumes, and the insight into the mind of a great poet. The scene when Keats describes to his lady, how a poet would experience a dive into the water..sets the tone for the rest of the film.

A really disappointing film. It appeared to have been put together from a series of outtakes. There was no chemistry betwwen the two lead characters. Ben Winshaw, I believe was badly caste as Keats and possessed no charisma. The film was overlong and one paced, and so dry as to have been almost unpalatable.

This movie reminded me of being in study hall. I was always looking at my watch to see when it would mercifully end. It is boring beyond belief. I love period pieces, but this one should never have left to can.
