A Month By The Lake

A Month By The LakeBBBB

(out of 5)


Sweet romantic film, beautifully photographed and excellently adapted from the novella by H.E. Bates.   plays a single tourist revisiting her favourite resort in Lake Como, one she often frequented as a young woman while her father was still alive. She meets a handsome ex-Major (), but finds his attention soon being dragged away by the arrival of an Italian family, whose delicious American governess () is more than just an eyeful. Of course, this doesn’t mean Redgrave doesn’t enjoy a little attention of her own from the young men, in her case an Italian suitor (, Vittorio’s grandson). Nothing too substantial, but it’s such a marvelous, light delicacy, and Redgrave is at the absolute peak of her deliciously natural form.
