Beautiful and tragic. Classic Evelyn Waugh.

Good cast. Poor script. I was disappointed.

I saw this movie recently and, previous to this, about 20 years ago. I am sure that the first version had a different ending, finishing with Kristin Scott in the scene where she discovers that she can't afford to buy the pork pie and instead the beef, implying that she had received her well-deserved comeuppance and left poor and lonely by her selfish actions. Does anybody else remember that ending or was it only wishful thinking on my part?

I think this is a very under-rated British film that perhaps one day will be more appreciated. Great performances and score and if the ending drives anyone to seek out the extraordinary novel that it is based on...

Beautifully filmed, excellent period detail and superb costume design. Wonderful performances from everyone, especially James Wilby and Kristin Scott Thomas. It does seem longer than it actually is though, and it does ha ve some slower parts, but a fine film.
