'The Wings of the Dove' is a slick period romance, but slightly too glossy (everything we see is either gorgeous or squalid - was there no mundane in the Edwardian period?). Helena Bonham Carter's role is that of a sassy young woman, well-connected but with no money of her own, who decides to manage an emotional con-trick. But she can't cope with the consequences of her own actions. Unfortunately, the plot is poorly developed - the other characters are not held responsible for their own actions, while Bonham Carter progresses from master schemer to victim of her own machinations in little more than a scene. Perhaps for this reason, all the actors seem a little disconnected from the story, the depth of their involvements conveyed by little more than the occasional smouldering look. Someone dies beautifully, but the film as a whole is synthetically inert. Though changes from a constant diet of Hollywood blockbusters are usually welcome, 'The Wings of the Dove' is almost like a parody of a subtle film - delicate but flat.

Kate Croy's mother was born to wealth and privilege, but she threw it all away to marry Kate's father, a penniless opium addict who admits to having stolen from his wife. After her mother's death, Kate is offered an opportunity to return to the life her mother gave up. There is a condition, however: Kate must sever all of her old ties, not only to her father, but also to her lover, the muck-raking journalist Merton Densher, whom she has promised marriage. Kate reluctantly agrees to this, and in the meantime becomes friendly with "the world's richest orphan," Millie Theale, an American making the Grand Tour. Desperate to see Kate, Merton crashes a party that she and Millie are attending, and Millie is attracted to him. When Kate learns that Millie is dying, she comes up with a plan to have her cake and eat it too...but all does not go as planned.

Glossy, plotlessReviewed bypaul2001sw-1Vote: 6/10
"The Wings of the Dove" poetically unveils itself with beautiful visuals and explorations in to the complexities of desire. A tragic irony, with an excellent finale. This movie also contains the most painfully emotive sex scene that I have ever seen; as it is honest and detailed with emotions that so rarely are captured this brilliantly in 'art'. This movie is intimate.
Henry James's novels are available for film adaptation, dramatic novels. As it is known, the most dominant feature of his novels is the success in using the point of view. There are 3 reflective consciousness whom are benefited from the point of view. These are Kate,Merton and Milly. Use of point of view in novel is linguistic. This work is more difficult in the cinema. Because now words there is no written language, there is a camera. In this film, however, the hero's point of view is shown successfully. Milly is "pigeon" as metaphor. When watching the movie You'll see why the dove is Milly. I think this film is "underrated". Dramatic and period film lovers watch.
