The first of our trilogy of films starring Greta Scacchi. Mike Figgis' remake of The Browning Version showcases some of the greatest talents in British acting and screenwriting. Adapted from Terence Rattigans's play by Ronald Harwood, Miss Scacchi plays the young wife of a much-disliked classics teacher (Albert Finney) at a British public school, who is reaching the end of his career. With Michael Gambon in the role of the Headmaster, Mike Figgis' film is a masterful re-telling of a well-known tale.
Albert Finney and Greta Scacchi have given a fabulous performance. Indeed this is a rare gem in cinema. I give this 9 out of 10. The script is tight, the music score good and the performances are amazing
