"The greatest lessons in the life and the ones learned by heart."
- Director: Mike Figgis
- Genre: Art House & International, Drama,
- Studio: Paramount Pictures
- Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 110 Mins
The last film that Mike Figgis made prior to achieving long-overdue international recognition with Leaving Las Vegas, this version of Terence Rattigan's old theatrical warhorse is a polished, if slightly old-fashioned, piece of work. However, it doesn't bear comparison with Anthony Asquith's 1951 adaptation, in which Michael Redgrave gave a more finely shaded performance than Albert Finney does here as the timid, under-appreciated schoolmaster, Crocker-Harris. Jean Kent and Nigel Patrick were also much more callous than Greta Scacchi and Matthew Modine as the couple who cuckold him. This was a curious choice for Figgis, perhaps, but the result is still an affecting tale.
