"A Room with a View" was one of my favourite films as a teenager, as well as most Merchant-Ivory productions. I saw it on TV one night, then caught the next day rerun and watched it a few more times over the years. I obviously fell for Julian Sands at first, but then I came to love most of the the other characters (to this day I cannot accept Helena Bonham Carter as Lucy and cannot despise Cecil, simply because Daniel Day-Lewis is beyond magnificence).
Reading the book I realised one thing. I prefer the film to it.
