5.0 out of 5 stars Speechless March 20 2004
Format:DVD
Having watched Mrs. Dalloway after having looked for it for at least three years, I can only say that I am breathless: True to Virginia Woolf's narrative, attentive to every detail, and with such subtlety is this movie made that I could find no better gift than this movie to a lover of Virginia Woolf's works. Vanessa Redgrave astounds with her incredibly moving performance, with a dignified emotiveness as only she can deliver- true to the bird-like Mrs. Dalloway.
Fans of explosions and other short-attention-grabbers need not apply, this is prime literature jumping onto the movie screen!

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful adaptation of the novel Sept. 15 2003
By gac1003
Format:DVD
Vanessa Redgrave gives a fine performance as Clarissa Dalloway in Marleen Gorris' adaptation of the Virginia Woolf novel. It tells the story of one day inthe life of Clarissa Dalloway as she readies her house for a dinner party later in the evening. Throughout the day, she remembers people and events from her past that had a lasting effect on her. But, during her party, the news of a suicide causes Mrs. Dalloway to step aside and to wonder if she's given up anything with her own life's path.
Ms. Redgrave's performance is subtle and really shines during the party sequence. Her facial expressions alone show what a fine actress she is. Other great performances in the film are Rupert Graves as Septimus, a soldier suffering from a late onset of shell shock, and Alan Cox, as the young Peter who was desparately in love with the young Clarissa.
Not many extras on the DVD. But the film is self is definitely one to watch.

By Grady Harp TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
MRS. DALLOWAY, the film, has a jolting beginning: the battlefield of WWI with a scene revealing Septimus Warren-Smith in abject terror that his friend Evans is about to walk into a mine explosion, a recurring memory for this character throughout the film. One wonders how MRS DALLOWAY could start there - until the story gradually unfolds. Then this seeming idiosyncrasy is shown to be just one more bit of evidence that the screenwriter is very in tune with the meadering writing style of Virginia Woolf. What a joy to see a novel of such sophisticated complexity be adapted into a movie that is fluid, rich in characterization, thoroughly grounded in the technique of how Woolf mixed memory with present reality in her telling such an indepth history of a woman a bit out of synch with her world, all in one day in June, 1923, as she prepares one of her beloved parties. Indeed, this film suggests that life is a 'party' where new acquaintances are made, old acquaintances are at times tolerated for social reasons, and the entirety of one's past can be summoned by the surprise appearance of signifcant people. This film is blessed with the presence of Vanessa Redgrave whose Mrs Dalloway is wholly credible. But the integration of Clarissa Dalloway's past with her present is so adroit that all of the characters in the present are greatly enhanced. Her love of Peter Walsh and of Sally say a lot about Virginia Woolf's ability to define the inner aspects of her character. Oh, and by the way, the beginning of the film introduces the thread that runs throughout - Septimus elects suicide as an answer to his life's questions, and we are left wondering if this might not be a viable thought running through the mind of Clarissa Dalloway as she reflects on her life choices at the end. A brilliant cast of characters, in every role, dressed to perfection and photographed in echt, period England further enhance this wonderful film. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

4.0 out of 5 stars Version pour le marché américain May 28 2010
Format:DVD
La bande sonore originale en anglais; jusque là ça va, pas de problème.
Les sous titres sont en espagnol seulement; moins acceptable pour le marché canadien. J'ai choisi de payer un peu plus et de faire affaire avec un vendeur canadien croyant à tort qu'il y ait sinon une bande sonore en français,au moins des sous titres en français.
Morale: communiquez avec le vendeur avant de commander.
Mea culpa

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Vanessa! Feb. 27 2003
Format:DVD
Vanessa Redgrave gives a spectacular performance in this DVD Mrs. Dalloway with grace and beauty. This story is Virginia's masterpiece that put her in the forefront of the literary community and helped establish her as a genunine story teller with great talent. She does not write linearly, she writes with the new style she introduced where she believed she could tell much about a character in a single day of their life through memories, flash backs, concurrent synchronicity events, etc. She opens a literary style that touches on the phenomenon of synchronicity. You'll love this if you are interested in these types of things. I have watched it several times.
