2017-3-6 《看得见风景的房间》1986喜欢片名胜过本身。86上译版的曹雷、杨文元、尚华的声音一出来，眼泪已夺眶而出。很可惜没有在情窦初开的青春年代看到这部影片。稚嫩的海伦娜·伯翰·卡特远不如她的哥特形象来的夺人心魄，baby face的小脸蛋太年轻太纯净，毫无波澜的情感表达平淡如水看的索然无味无法专心。只有玛吉·史密斯几十年如一日不输岁月的碎嘴刻薄看的过瘾，戏已入骨，不分年龄。时间不停，时光逝去，曾经执念憧憬的这部美好片名的终有一天得见的时候，日渐老去的心并没有给我想象中如伊丽莎白和达西般的感动。这是多么遗憾的事情，比看一出悲剧更叫人心伤。
A revisit of this resplendent Merchant-Ivroy-Jhabvalacostume porn， A ROOM WITH A VIEW， has wondrously retained its entrancing lusciousness in the wake of the impeccable restoration.
Spending a belle-époque vacation in Florence， young English lady Lucy Honeychurch Bonham Carter hailed from an upper-middle class upbringing， is chaperoned by her elder cousin Charlotte Barlett Smith meets a sundry of compatriots in their pensione， among which， Mr. Emerson Elliott and his son George Sands express their willingness to exchange their rooms with the ladies upon Charlottes grievance that their rooms dont have a view. A gesture with benevolence is met with Charlottes utter dismay， who is ingrained in her straitlaced head space and constantly clashes with Lucys more open-minded temperament falling in with the story“s turn-of-the-century ethos.The pairs Florentine sojourn is topped off by an impulsive kiss from George with Lucy in its receiving end during a rural sally， what would have happened next nudge nudge wink wink is successfully pre-empted by Charlottes intervention， and the scandal is sworn of secrecy by both Lucy and Charlotte， but little do we know， one of them cannot keep that promise and the other would be fallen under the magic spell， of such a banal but passionate kiss.The next chapter spirits Lucy away to her home turf， where she consents to the engagement with a pedantic gentleman Cecil Vyse Day-Lewis but due to a quirk of fate or rather， itsauthor E.M. Forsters novelistic licence George and his father materialize themselves as the new tenants of a cottage in the same village， their settlement wrong-foots a seemingly contented Lucy， and ripples of that previous impulse accentuated by Georges constant presence actuates Lucy to rethink her nuptial decision and for the first time， acknowledges to her true feelings which will find her the fulfillment that breaches the entrenched class barrier.Consequentially， A ROOM WITH A VIEW is blessed with a cracking dramatis personae， Maggie Smith， in her another terrific Oscar-nomimated showcase that significantly solidifies her priggish spinster screen persona of her later career， self-consciously warbling her way through her passive-aggressive stock-in-trade， but when subjected to the pitfall of becoming a laughingstock， she will plough on with a tenacious obliviousness that remarkably intimates how hard for a woman of her bearings to survive apparently unscathed under such a snooty milieu.BAFTA favorite Denholm Elliott bags his once-in-a-lifetime Oscar nomination as the solicitous， agreeable Mr. Emerson， but by my lights， the champ among supporting actors against a fierce competition from Elliott， Simon Callows exceedingly personable and responsive Reverend Mr. Beebe， the mascot of the film， and Julian Sands flash-in-the-pan raffish brio is none other than Mr. Day-Lewis， stylishly out of step with the repugnant stereotype of a high-brow， conservative scion， even he is not cut out for Lucy， one certainly feels sorry for him when he accepts his defeat in a gentlemanly manner， which effectively salvages the supposedly most antipathetic character in the story and purveys Cecil a dignified， yet rather touching sheen that is not present in the book.While Maggie Smith is unequivocally the cherrypick among the film”s petticoat players， one would be too remiss to not mention Judi Denchs novelist Eleanor Lavish， who shares most of her scenes with Smith for stanned fans， it marks a monumental moment！， taking in her stride spirited convos that triumph the Bechdel test but not above tittle-tattling also Rosemary Leach has a good run as Lucys patrician， nonplussed mother， but it is quite a slight that a 18-year-old HelenaBonham Carter is left without much fanfare in her stunning film debut， who stoutly holds her own against any member of these more experienced thespians， only if her final liberation doesnt lead to a faintly saccharine revisit of Florence with her beau， but a new perspective on her own life and role in a larger context， as an independent woman who doesnt suppress her feelings and thoughts， perceives the world with an upgraded awareness， that would be a more judicious coda for todays viewers.In the ， A ROOM WITH A VIEW is a nonpareil British drama-comedy， souped up by scrumptious trimmings aplenty cinematography， costume， music， production design and a collective fusillade of hallmark elocutionwhere Victorian formality fighting a losing battle with Edwardian enlightenment， and theMerchant-Ivroy-Jhabvala trinitys best work！
