The story's constant and unexpected turns do provide rewards, but the real value of the film is in the richness with which it presents moral and emotional conflicts, laying them out with sensible realism and power.

A richly nuanced comedy of manners about the affect of a foreign country and its culture on two provincial souls.

Where Angels Fear to Tread is slow and deliberate, but the film is so absorbing that the audience won't mind.

Audience Reviews for Where Angels Fear to Tread

This was a pretty disappointing movie for me. It really just mimics and taps into the popularity of films like "A Room With A View", "The Importance of Being Eanrest", "Enchanted April" or even "The Painted Veil". Its mildly amusing, and pretty well acted, but that is about it. It always kind of surprises me to see Helena Bonham Carter is these type of roles. I realize they are what made her famous, but she is so much better as Marla in Fight Club, or as the Corpse Bride or the muderous Mrs. Lovett. As much as I would like too, I really cannot even say its worth watching; because its not.
