Beautiful cinematography with scenes with a family, it slowly engages you to understand subtlety the entire household from the servants to the wealthy landowner however I thought the movie would highlight the 'forbidden' relationship that potentially develop and never did. It's nice historical movie but fails on the theme between the 2 wives.
