Well acted and filmed. Besides the talented cast which most period dramas in fact have, nothing else was done that made it stick out from the pack.

Scrumptious, enticing and perfectly orchestrated with all the clamor and superfluousness of the passionate but cold Victorian Age. The cast is depicted as a lovely family that nonetheless lives in a very sexually repressed period, coupled by the authoritarian values of obedience and discipline. In spite of the lush and pristine camera work mirroring the ethos of the age, it however, belabors far too much on the nature of emotional love without separating itself from prior films.

Its something to see DDL play a complete pansy, but its Bonham Carter and Maggie Smith that steal this. I suppose my lack of interest in costume dramas makes me biased, but the inevitable outcome couldn't come fast enough after awhile.

This elegant and restrained James Ivory costume drama is just graceful enough to keep its audience constantly engaged and just as controlled to never let it be anything more than mildly fascinated. Splendidly made, well-filmed and blessed with a top-notch cast, "A Room With a View" is nevertheless rather unspectacular and its beautifully framed shots quickly evaporate from memory. It is undoubtedly good enough for what it is though and it fully succeeds on the terms it sets.

One of the best adaptation scripts ever written is turned into a truly great film. Everything works in this movie from the opening strains of Verdi's music to the last scene when the lovers return to Florence. Not a wrong note is hit. Perfect casting, deft direction. Beautiful! A definite five star attraction.

I am not a big fan of costume dramas. But I found this film by James Ivory more than tolerable. It's very playful and fun, as a contrast to the stiff upper lips it portrays. Bonham Carter makes a pleasant to watch debut. She looks really nice in those dresses. Real star of the film is almost unrecognizable Daniel Day-Lewis. He creates character of immensely enjoyable and charismatic geeky snob. Movie is shot very lightly, and there are lots of scenes that show the beauty of the old Europe.

Day-Lewis and Maggie Smith are simply delightful here, most notably for their subtle comedic turns. These performances could veer off into mockery, but instead the fine actors imbue them with humanity. The romantic story at the film's center is overdone and not as compelling, but the writing is consistently clever, the scenery delightful to look at. It all makes for an enjoyable turn every now and then.

This is a placid romance, but I found the young Bonham Carter enrapturing despite the restrictions of her character. The setting and production is lovely, and I certainly love the period and the theme, but taken as a whole I find the film slightly uneventful. There is a lot of meaning in examining only the slow process of overturning social convention, but it isn't a particularly visceral experience, and I think the film could have made better use of its medium in conveying its message.
