Too much artistic licence for my liking - A Room with a View review by ChrisB

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2022

The film was true to the novel, but it seemed that there was too much focus on 'artistry' rather than the love story. Although beautiful Florence was at the heart of the story (and, specifically, the "view" of the Arno), there were several other landmarks that could have featured - although I appreciate you have to stop somewhere. More importantly, however, there was a lack of continuity and 'flow' of the narrative in places.
