Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy and Romance
Conclusion: 4/5
This is a very moving and sad film. I love Alan Rickman in this film and think it is a shame that he didn’t go on to do more parts like this. So that Alan Rickman could play the part he had lessons on how to play the cello. Juliet Stevenson character comes across as very convincing. Anthony Minghella writes the script but does it in a way that has pathos and humour in. He wrote the script with Juliet Stevenson in mind for the part. One of the best movie quotes is Juliet Stevenson quoting “I can’t believe I have a bunch of dead people watching videos in my living room”. This is a classic film which contains one of Alan Rickman’s finest performances. In 1992 this won one Bafta Award for Best Screenplay – Original (Anthony Minghella).
