Brideshead RE-Revisited



My thanks to a newly found fellow blogger Stefan, better known as Architectdesign, who reminded me of the soon to open movie version of Brideshead Revisited. I mention this for two reasons, one being that I loved the original series and secondly, that I am shocked to realize that it originally was shown in 1981. Can it be that long ago?

I must say that although the cast for the new movie is impressive, I'll be very surprised to see it match the original. Here is a moment from the original.

I recall that An Easy and Elegant Life recently posted about the series and our mutual regard for the soundtrack. I did however follow Stefan's link to the movie's website and was more intrigued by its software and presentation than by the movie itself. Its beautifully put together and shows what is to come. The way it links interviews and showcases the movie might be better than the final product. I urge you to take a look and you better have a broadband connection to enjoy it.Brideshead Revisited.

Yes, have to admit I'm a bit apprehensive. It looks very pretty, but I'm still worried; how can it match the original? We shall see!

I hear that the relationship among Sebastian, Julia and Charles is taken to an extreme and that it is implied that Lord Marchmain has taken liberties with his children...

Dandyism.net has more... I have little hope for the final product. I hope it will at least be visually stunning.
