Nick's Profile >

a luscious, surprisingly complex adaptation of the Henry James novel..........(Hossein Amaini) bring(s) a wealth of ambiguity and mystery to the surface -- and release(s) the characters from the cliches that easily could have swallowed them.


Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

"The Wings of the Dove" succeeds where virtually every other film translation of a James novel has stumbled.
