  • Intelligent but exasperating, its monotonous tone will wear down even viewers who started out in its corner. [27 Dec 1996] show more

  • Ms. Campion has shown a gift for pictorialism -- static pictorialism; she's not a fluid filmmaker - and an abiding fascination with sexual repression. She brings both to this long, slow, distanced version of the Henry James novel. [27 Dec 1996] show more
