The French Lieutenant’s Woman, A movie is being made of a story, set in nineteenth-century England, about Charles, a biologist who’s engaged to be married, but who falls in love with outcast Sarah, whose melancholy makes her leave him after a short, but passionate affair. Anna (Meryl Streep) and Mike (Jeremy Irons), who play the characters of Sarah and Charles, go, during the shooting of the movie, through a relationship that runs parallel to that of their characters.

Smart, atmospheric love story with brilliant actors

The French Lieutenant’s Woman, When I got this movie, and read the title, I wasn’t expecting anything that would suit my taste. I have been expecting a cheesy, unrealistic and boring women’s movie. – I have been wrong.

Of course it was a bit cheesy, but less cheesy than most Hollywood movies. Actually, the whole movie was quite realistic. Of course this movie is mainly for women. – It’s a love story! Yet, I find it has more to offer to male viewers than other love stories. The main actor is male. An absolutely interesting character. A character that is trying hard to be good, but isn’t perfect at all. A character you can actually identify with. And my god, Jeremy Irons played that character so well.

This movie has a calm and melancholic atmosphere. I am sure many people will mistake it for “boredom”. – Not me; the story is so interesting, that it kept me curious throughout the whole movie. I really didn’t know how this story was ending. And yet, the ending satisfied me totally. An extremely unusual case for me.

My pretty much only gripe about the movie is, that the story in the 20th century is suffering in length. While characters and storyline are in perfect shape when it comes to 19th century, the story and characters lack depth, when it comes to the 20th century.
