The Best movie I have ever seen. Ryan Phillippe was so hot in it!
Great movie, but you have to pay close attention to EVERYTHING to understand it. Those who don`t will get lost and think it`s boring. Those who do, will be rewarded with wonderful murder mystery. Great movie, loved it. =)
Difficult movie to follow. Very slow movie, one of us fell asleep, the rest of us felt like leaving.
Full of wonderful moments: the countess snubbing the American producer from her car, her maid given precedence at dinner over the maid of a mere baroness, the servants listening to Ivor Novello while the self-absorbed aristocrats chat and play bridge ... One of the most enjoyable movies for years.
the best Robert Altman movie of all time.
It`s so hard now a days to find a movie that holds ones interest through out. I found Godsford Park to be such a movie. There was so much information flowing through the film that even if i did get confused i was enthralled at the same time. The actors, the script, the direction, the design, this is truly a fool proof film unless a complete idiot was at the helm, and Altman is no idiot. Bravo!
It had its moments, but the film tended to drag on for me. It didn`t live up to all the hype.
It was a well built tale about the hypocracy of british high society at the turn of the century... Piercing in critique, but lacking in entratainment... a miss with american audiences that miss the depth of the story.
