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.

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.

More than a great love story. It's both a lighthearted and deeply impassioned inspirational lesson about life.

Quaint. I really liked young Helena Bonham Carter in this. I ended up sympathizing most with Cecil though...

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.

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.

To be fair, this movie is a fine example of its genre (Victorian period piece), but personally all the repressed sexuality and romanticized acts of rebellion seem both silly and boring.
