When this movie was first released I watched it over and over again. It is a beautiful movie, great performances by all the cast. My husband says I like it only for the guys running naked - simply not true...

What more can be said about this film? It's a masterpiece, a thing of beauty. I've watched it dozens of times and it never fails to move and delight me. Ismael Merchant, Ruth Prawer and James Ivory were masters of their craft. I think E.M. Forster would have been pleased.

Beautiful--a matserpiece, truly. The opera song "O mio bambino caro" is now a personal favourite--it's moving and romantic and humorous...(i liked the nude guys, heehee)

I thought this one really showed its age. Not one of the better performance by Maggie Smith. Rather slow and uninteresting. There were a couple of interesting and amusing lines. Was disappointed overall.

Lucy Honeychurch, a splendid Helena Bonham-Carter, after a flustering taste of Florence, returns to a much more staid England, where she accepts the proposal of a dandified suitor, a prancing effete, the superb Daniel Day Lewis, but the flusterer, Julian Sands, shows up with his gentleman father at the hamlet in Surrey where his reluctant inamorata now lives and unsettles again the heroine, by this time a prospective bride, a resolution of course must ensue, Maggie Smith provides impeccably the mischief

This is one of my all time favorite romantic movies. The scene in the wheat field always makes me catch my breath.

One of the best British movies. The movie is the excellent adaptation of 1908 same titled book by E.M. Forster.
One of the best scenes were where George and his father put all the blue corn flowers on the bed of the elderly lady since she told them she liked the corn flowers. Acting is excellent and George's father's last speech to Charlotte was very moving about his son's love to Lucie.

The Reverend Mr. Eager: Remember the facts about this church of Santa Croce; how it was built by faith in the full fervour of medievalism.
Mr. Emerson: Built by faith indeed! That simply means the workers weren't paid properly.
