Movie Reviews

A Love Story
Amos Lassen | Little Rock, Arkansas | 03/22/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

""A Village Affair"

A Love Story

Amos Lassen

Alice is married to Martin who she finds to be quite a boring man. When they move to a small village, Martin begins flirtations with Clodagh, but we see that she is more interested in his wife.
We see the selfishness and childishness of the characters with the exception of Alice who appeasers to be the only person with sense. Sophie Ward gives a wonderful performance as Alice but the love affair was not really believable and Kerry Fox as Clodagh emotes entirely too much-so much in fact that she loses credence. Now the movie is not bad but it could have been so much better. Ward, a lesbian in real life, plays the role of a housewife-cum-lesbian to perfection but she has little back-up from the rest of the cast. Kerry Fox seems to do not much more than roam the English countryside and crying about her thwarted love affair with Ward.
There are shades of the wonderful Merchant/Ivory team but unfortunately the film is far too imitative and just doesn't add up to what more capable hands could have done with the wonderful material that was originally written by Joanna Trollope.

Well worth seeing.

"I found this film a pleasure to experience. Sophie Ward is stunning. She carries the film as she beautifully captures in a subtle, complex, and very compelling performance, the emotional changes her character is going through. I look forward to seeing it again."
