CGiii Comment

Chamberlain is perfectly cast.

Jackson just lets herself go - giving one of the most memorable performances ever seen in cinema.

It has all the Russell trademarks - the unflinching adherence to a subjective truth - no matter what the censors dictate.

And that is why Russell is simply such an important director - he did not pander to their hypocrisy.

Spellbinding work.

The(ir) Blurb...

The compelling and bizarre story of Tchaikovsky's life and music. In Ken Russell's own words: "It's the story of the marriage between a homosexual and a nymphomaniac."
