  • Day-Lewis is smashing as the man caught between his emotions and the social ethic. Not since Olivier in "Wuthering Heights" has an actor matched piercing intelligence with such imposing good looks and physical grace. show more

  • A magnificent movie. [19 Oct 1993, p.A18(E)] show more

  • I have seen love scenes in which naked bodies thrash in sweaty passion, but I have rarely seen them more passionate than in this movie, where everyone is wrapped in layers of Victorian repression. show more

    It was an impeccable direction by Martin Scorsese. The way he depicted the 1920 era is truly remarkable. The language, sets, jewelry, all too remarkable. If anyone wants to listen to excellent english language, this is the one.A ********** for classic movie lovers
