  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    L'histoire d'Isabel Archer, une jeune femme fort indépendante qui se laisse manipuler par une prétendue amie, l'incitant à se marier avec son ancien amant, Gilbert Osmond ..... Lourdement décevant ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    Sick of feeling guilty about my adoration of Campion's intense fragility, I gave myself over, and not a second seemed wasted.

  3. Igor Ramos's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    Staggering beautiful film! I think it lacks some of the wit of "The Dangerous Liaisons" and at times you might feel like you're watching an unnecessary melodrama about a white, beautiful and filthy rich girl... because Kidman's Isabel is presented like an intelligent, ambitious and even austere woman who eventually succumbs to the obligations of being and acting like a lady. You keep rooting for her to just run free!

  4. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    2.5 stars. It doesn't approach the book but that would be a tall order. The one who comes off best is Barbara Hershey. Nicole Kidman is her usual opaque self and John Malkovich, who I normally like a lot, looks too much like the rotten man he plays here, by which I mean he couldn't fool anyone. He might as well be called Snidely Whiplash.

  5. C's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    So many moments of pure genius from Campion and Kidman, Hershey, and others. Maybe half unintelligible without reading Portrait or a detailed summary beforehand and could have done without one or two particular interpretations/additions but overall incredible, painful, complex, and ambitious.

  7. daftnymph's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    fuck da consummate seducer; stylish and beautiful, but cloistered with this glaze of superficiality. none of the actors' interpretations manage to be quite believable, except for barbara hershey's. also... not a fan of campion's use of slow-mo.

  8. aikeart's rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

  10. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Portrait of a Lady

    Sooo slow and overly emotional. I didn;t have any time to read the book so I felt committed to watching this, but one should do it for a more effective comparison
