Philip, an orphan, was taken in and brought up by his cousin Ambrose, a Devon landowner he loves like a father. At a time, Ambrose, who has been advised by his physician a warmer climate, leaves for Tuscany. There he meets and marry Rachel, a half-Italian cousin of his. After an idyllic outset, the situation deteriorates. Shortly before his death, Ambrose manages to alert Philip: his wife is killing him slowly. Willing to sort out the truth, Philip goes to Ambrose's place but he does not find Rachel, who has gone away. Instead he meets Rainaldi, her friend and lawyer, who does not inspire him with confidence. He returns to his estate, persuaded that Rachel is evil and is the direct cause of Ambrose's death. Some time later, Rachel announces her coming. Determined to welcome her coolly, he is stunned to discover a woman not only beautiful but elegant, intelligent and sensitive. Instead of strangling her like he said he would, he falls in love. Madly. Written by
Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin are doing a very good job! Like the other actors. You can see and feel behind there is the work from the director, Roger Michell. The film is as good as Henry Koster's 1952 version, with Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton. The film is good first of all because it is based on a fascinating story, signed by Daphne Du Maurier. When you got a good story and good actors and good director, you got great chances to make a good movie. And nowadays, all these are increasingly rare, especially great stories.
