Unwise cameos by the painter Gary Hume and the fashion journalist Hamish Bowles — as a Moraes conquest and a limp-wristed David Hockney, respectively — momentarily contradict but cannot do real damage to the prevailing seriousness of an exceptional film.
Supporting cast also is on-target, especially the circle of Soho vipers, spitting out their barbs with great aplomb.
This review was originally published in the Guardian on 18 Sep 1998.
Adrian Scarborough as the creepy Farson and Karl Johnson as the pathetic Deakin make a fine pair of stooges, and a witches' chorus is provided by Tilda Swinton as the foulmouthed Muriel Belcher, Anne Lambton as the perceptive Isabel Rawsthorne and Annabel Brooks as the cheerily libidinous Henrietta Moraes.
Reviewed at Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard , May 18, 1998.
Piccolo ruolo per Tilda Swinton che si dimostra, come suo solito, camaleontica.
The film won three awards at the Edinburgh International Film Festival: Best New British Feature director John Maybury and two Best British Performance awards, one for Jacobi and, the other for future James Bond actor, Craig.
