Chief Chick Comments

This is an artistic and psychological movie-not for men without a feminine side. That being said, it is fascinating. I am tempted to get out the old psychology books to understand this story. Make your own conclusions with the turn of events in the last third of the film. Woodcock dresses royalty and the very rich of Europe, and is assisted by his sister, Cyril, played by Leslie Manville. He often dreams of his Mother, long dead, and the wedding dress he made for her second wedding when he was just 16 years old. After discarding one lover with his sister's assistance, he drives to the country and meets Alma, a waitress who works near his country estate. She turns out to be more than a simple country girl and is perhaps his match in the long run. We see beautiful gowns being designed and made and view the beautiful homes in which Reynolds lives. He is almost childlike about his routine and needs and it is hard to believe anyone or anything can change his somewhat unkind personality. Despite its length, I was glued to the screen, so to speak. Day-Lewis has reportedly said this is his last film so be sure to see it!

Recently saw this movie. Loved the fashion. Loved the acting. Found the story-line interesting, but unbelievable. Perhaps I'm not a romantic, but the Oedipus complex for Reynolds seemed thrown in for dramatic effect. And his overall bullying and narcissistic personality unbelievable to succumb to how the movie ended. And Alma's personality didn't resonate to putting up with the personality of Reynolds. The ending was a bit irritating because of that. But still I give it a 3 for the beautiful filming and superb acting.
