Rachel Weisz acted well in the part. Was interested in most of the movie until the weak and confusing ending.

Loved it! Complex and well acted.

I'm normally a sucker for romantic mystery and gothic atmosphere, but the pacing is so choppy and muddled that the film quickly loses steam. I was rather bored to be honest, a shame, considering the lovely production values.

mediocre at best. Muddled.

Rachel Weisz's talents are wasted in this muddy Gothic romance/possible murder mystery as she plays a femme fatale, newly arrived from Italy, who's suspected of poisoning her former husband. Lots of arguing that leads to nowhere. The two leads' romance is unconvincing and there's a misunderstanding of what they want from each other.

Ditto on a previous comment: "What was the point of resources being used to make this film"

Excellent film based on the book by Daphne Dumarier. Beautifully filmed, lovely costumes, great acting.

Have not read the book by Daphne Du Maurier, nor do I remember seeing the two previous depictions (1952 movie and a 1983 four part tv mini series).
Although there was impressive quality acting, I found the young English man to have been too easily misled under the charms of Rachel. It did not show enough of a transference from an accuser to falling in love, for me to care or have sympathy for this young man. Too brash and unlikable.
Rachel Weisz was again very impressive with her subtle and controlling role.

Read the book, I could not put it down. The movie does not do the book justice.

What was the point of resources being used to make this film which, while nice to look at and well-acted, was devoid of content?
