'Did she? Didn't she? Who was to blame?', 2 September 2017
Author: gradyharp from United States

South African director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Changing Lanes, Enduring Love) adapted Daphne D Maurier's famous mystery novel of 1951 for the screen and while some of the subtleties and playing out of the drama are overlooked, the splendor of the acting and the scenery and musical score and grandeur of the scale make up for much of those oversights.

The mystery involves Philip (Sam Claflin), 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 (Rachel Weisz) 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 (Pierfrancesco Favino) 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 who is not only beautiful but also elegant, intelligent and sensitive. Instead of strangling her like he said he would, he falls in love. The manner in which Rachel behaves, both in a safe distance from reality and in a loving way, sets the plot for the actions of Rachel and the growing doubt of Philip and eventually leads to the surprising ending.

Sam Clafin is clearly a new actor to watch. He is well suited for historic period pieces, for a romantic lead, and despite the jarring error of the costumer's decision of keeping the way too contemporary look of a 5 o'clock shadow facial hair to throw his character out of joint Claflin is wholly believable. Rachel Weisz as expected is impeccable as Rachel and the supporting cast (especially Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, Bobby Scott Freeman, Tim Barlow, Andrew Havill et al) is very strong. Rael Jones supplies the musical score for Mike Eley's cinematography. Even for those who fail to forgive a non- verbatim screenplay of Du Maurier's novel will appreciate the grandeur of the film.
