Movie Info

Pianist Nina (Juliet Stevenson) and cellist Jamie (Alan Rickman) played together and loved together. When they weren't making music with each other, they made love. It was an idyllic romantic and musical partnership, and when Jamie dies, Nina takes it very hard. The condolences of friends and relatives don't help much when everything in the apartment they shared reminds her of him. She's a real basket case, and can barely get on with her life. One day, while plunking dejectedly on the piano,

This is a beguiling film in more ways than one.

This sharply scripted study of a bereaved woman who literally wishes her partner back from the grave is an impressive directorial bow by British playwright Anthony Minghella.

As a metaphor for the experience of bereavement, the conceit is over-extended, though Stevenson almost makes it work.

Miss Stevenson, Mr. Rickman and Mr. Maloney, good actors all, work tirelessly on behalf of the insistently gooey and smug material.

Minghella lays on the whimsy a bit thick at times, but his wryly funny and heartfelt observations on sorrow go down much easier than the Hollywood brand of lump-in-the-throat histrionics.

Even though the ghosts can walk through walls the script can't get past its emotionally manipulative love story.

Odd, effective little comedy fantasy anchored by leads.

Deeply moving film that only underscores the tragedy of continually casting Rickman as a villain.

"a slightly cerebral 'Ghost' for the art-house crowd"

Truly Madly Deeply is an odd duck of a movie that never really gets off the ground.

Juliet Stevenson gives a heartfelt performance as an English woman who travels to the far country of grief and almost doesn't make it back.

In a brave directorial debut, Anthony Minghella appears to be trying to unfold the fact that rose-tinted memories of love are often more enthralling that the reality.

This is a wonderful, disarming film, sort of like Ghost, but with all the Hollywood drained from it, leaving nothing on screen but the truth of the matter.

Audience Reviews for Truly, Madly, Deeply

I heard raves about this movie but I thought it was horrendous. Stagey, saccharine and painfully PC.

A beautiful and funny romantic drama/comedy about a woman who can't get past the death of her boyfriend, and he comes back as a ghost to help her. I love this movie.
