Format:DVD
I watched this movie and re-learned a lot about customs of gone by years in France where morality was categorized differently than most places now. Courtisans were an expected and wealthy breed of woman and everyone knew who and what they were. These woman chose to be kept by a wealthy gentleman for whatever his purpose with full knowledge that she was provided for with the most lavish luxuries available.
The movie with a "very handsome" Young "Colin Firth" fell in love with a country girl just as she first arrived in the streets of Paris having run away from a miserable country life; she wanted the lavish life style which she got. He sees this country girl when she arrives in Paris and there is instant attraction.
As a sickly young woman "Consumptive" she finds her best avenue for a meal is an unscrupulous artist who takes her as a lover and paints her on canvas. A wealthy man buys the painting aquiring her in the bargain. Our hero meets her again and the attraction is so strong that she decides to leave her life style. Things do not go quite as she planned and "our hero" leaves her over a disagreement for some time; only to return as she lay on her death bed. He finds her before she dies and spends the rest of his life visiting her grave on the anniversary of her death. He is well off as an educated man but we know nothing of his life after her death or even before they parted when the couple went separate ways bitterly. The local gossip monger sends him to her death bed. ...The story is a bitter sweet one but for the true romantic it is a feast for the eyes on the time period settings, clothing and custom of every rommantic ideal that has ever floated out of Paris France and its lovely countryside as it must have offered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Un anglais à Paris April 28 2013
Format:DVD
Malheureusement, tout dans ce film sonne faux. Colin Firth en est à ses premières armes et il n'est pas très convainquant. Cette histoire d'amour magnifique nous laisse sans larmes. Il est impossible de croire à ce destin tragique car il est impossible d'oublier qu'il s'agit de "British" qui jouent les parisiens.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Colin Firth Movies Available Jan. 11 2011
By KN - Published on Amazon.com
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 Feb. 2 2011
By Kadie - Published on Amazon.com
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 Dec 5 2010
By propdevel - Published on Amazon.com
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 Feb. 24 2011
By fairlind - Published on Amazon.com
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 Sept. 6 2012
By Avid reader - Published on Amazon.com
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.
