Stellar directing, acting, and set design. The introductory scene (the beach scene) could have been omitted, along with any mention of Mr. Ducie. The pacing was fine--better than the pacing in *A Room with a View*, another slow-moving James Ivory film--but the idyllic ambiance throughout ...Read more

Very nice movie, but I wish there was a lot more affection between Maurice and Clive.

I imagine Maurice wished the same thing, but Clive didn't have it to give, did he? Or he was too much of a coward - take your pick.

What more might have EM Forester been and written had he not lived when he did?

I usually watch with captions - marked as 'in foreign language' when speaking in Latin. Dear oh dear.

The usual Merchant-Ivory opulent settings, and interesting period and social norms as a background for this story.

While the time period was interesting the film lacked content and was very boring. The only parts I liked were the first 30 minutes and the rest felt like a complete waste. Definitely not a recommended film for LBGT content with so many superior titles out there.
