The House of Mirth Geregisseerd door Terence Davies
Davies’ romantic style—with its sumptuous production design, graceful camera movements, and a musical flow of imagery—connotes a longing for something better than what we’re seeing, and this mood, sustained over the course of nearly two and a half hours, accumulates into a feeling of profound tragedy.

Beneath its gorgeous, colour-saturated façade, rages a brutal, near-barbaric world of oppressive social rituals and expectations; a “horror movie”, where words are deadly weapons. In this way, and in its description of the strangulating effect of Lily Bart’s (Gillian Anderson) social alienation, The House of Mirth is an essential Davies film.

Davies’ eye is inexplicably compassionate: both a reflection of and a response to the rules and conventions that prevent his heroes from seeing their longing realized. There is a warmth, a richness, even a sensuality to Davies’ style that is completely absent from the chilly, soulless grandeur of his new milieu.
