    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.
