Editorial Reviews

One of the world’s most famous love stories comes to vibrant life in this lavish production filled with stunning scenery and a once in a lifetime cast! Nicknamed “Camille,” the beautiful Marguerite (Greta Scacchi, Brideshead Revisited) sacrifices her honor to become a high society escort who only entertains the richest men in Paris. However, the young and dashing Armand Duval (Academy Award® winner Colin Firth, The King’s Speech) falls hopelessly in love with her and determines to win her heart. As their love blossoms, Armand’s father (Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley, Gandhi) feels Marguerite is unworthy of his son and begins to interfere… while Marguerite has a shocking secret of her own that will alter the course of their lives forever. Also starring Academy Award® winner John Gielgud (Arthur), Denholm Elliott (A Room with a View), and Billie Whitelaw (Quills), this Emmy Award-winning gem, from the director of Clash of the Titans, is an unforgettable romance for the ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Colin Firth Movies Available January 11, 2011
By KN
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Compared to other Colin Firth movies, this movie was very flat. I love period movies, and comparing to the likes of Jane Austin, this one pales in comparison. I had higher hopes for this film so was disappointed when I finished watching it.
The character of Camille was not well formed. She gave a sub-par performance. Firth seemed stilted and robotic at times.
The story line was a good one, and the potential for it being much more fleshed out would have made it much more endearing. So, it left me feeling like I wasted 100 minutes of my day.
So, chalk it up to one not so hot purchase.
I'll loan it to my daughter, with whom I LOVE to watch movies like this, but with a forwarning not to expect too much.
I would recommend saving the $$$ and watching Pride and Prejudice again!

2.0 out of 5 stars Made for TV Movie February 2, 2011
By Kadie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I tried to find information on this movie prior to purchasing the DVD but didn't find much. This is a 'made for TV movie' which means the budget wasn't that great and it shows. I purchased it for the great cast but even they could not elevate the quality of the production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Love story December 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Beautiful love storey with Greta Scacchi and Colin Firth. They work beautifully together and the film is a delight to watch. Its a simple story yet tragic...

Great to see an very under valued Greta Scacchi work as she is a class actress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right after Austen February 24, 2011
Format:DVD
I loved this movie. It's true that it doesn't quite reach the Jane Austen heights, but then in my book nothing does. This was not meant to be a happy, witty movie. It's a soulful, melancholy film that somehow reminds me of Haagen Dazs ice cream. Slow and rich, meant to be savored.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lady of the Camellias September 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
(Spoilers ahead) I have waited for many years to see this on DVD and was elated to see it released in 2011. I agree that the film did not fully exploit the talents of the superb cast, but the costumes and sets are well done, and--most of all--the story is true the fictionalized life of Marie Duplessis (by Alexandre Dumas the younger), the Parisian courtesan who died of tuberculosis in the early 1840s at the age of 23. (For opera lovers, this same story was turned into "La Traviata.")

The reviewers who were "shocked" by the "immorality" evidently needed a lesson in history. This film is a period piece. The protagonist Marguerite was a courtesan--essentially a high-class prostitute. What did they expect? She was a "companion" for men of the upper-crust whose time was paid for in money, jewelry and other expensive gifts.

As a made-for-TV film of the 1980s, the budget (as mentioned) is not as lavish as a film from the silver screen, but the film still conveys the life of the aristocracy (the young lover was a duke and the son of a duke) and the demimonde in Paris of the mid-19th century.

If you are a fan of literature of the Romantic period or enjoy costumed films, you will enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic: Absolutely Wonderful March 16, 2011
By Y. Fox
Format:DVD
If you are a fan of the classics, this is a wonderful version of Camille. Academy Award Winner Colin Firth was sooooooooooooooo young when he made this but he was great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cast, not well written February 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although I am a fan of Colin Firth, and it is interesting to see an early performance of his, this movie left me cold. The young Greta Sacchi was good. The scenery was good. The costumes, especially the men's hats, were cheesy and off-putting. The writing and direction and production are below average.
Instead of this DVD, I recommend the wonderful Franco Zeferilli version of the opera starring Placido Domingo and the lovely Teresa Stratas. Search on Amazon is: Verdi: La Traviata Teresa Stratas. The opera is fast moving and of course a classic. This is the same story as Camille.Verdi: La Traviata

I purchased this movie because I will watch anything with Colin Firth starring in it. This did not disappoint me. I found the movie very touching. I gave it 5 stars because of Colin Firth and Greta Scacchi.

3.0 out of 5 stars The cover aludes to romance but it was far from that, in my humble...

3.0 out of 5 stars Young Colin Firth was the Best Part
This is a rather odd film. I didn't really like the leading lady but who can resist Colin Firth. The leading lady is very flakey.
