Period and Historical
The sophisticated novel on which this film is based is one in which the reader is continually reminded that they are reading a novel. So, intelligently, this film does something similar, by interspersing into the richly romantic 19th-century love story with sequences in which the modern actors playing the characters (Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep) meet, flirt and talk about the film they're making. The result is a fine romantic film, and also an interesting film about film-making and story-telling.
