Address Comments To:
THE BROWNING VERSION is a story driven by character revelations and decisions. The director Mike Figgis confidently guides his actors into a kind of underplayed naturalism, and Albert Finney turns in a skillfully restrained performance which is undoubtedly one of the finest of his long career. It is refreshing to see the Scriptural themes of unconditional love and the redemptive power of forgiveness played out in such a skillful manner. It is regrettable that the film is marred by the unnecessary use of a handful of obscenities sprinkled into the dialogue. Other than that, there is much to appreciate and be entertained by in THE BROWNING VERSION.
