IMAGES FROM VINTERBERG'S FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD


Had forgotten about this, but these ravishing stills will linger long in my memory, I'm sure. Thomas Vinterberg directs David Nicholls' adaptation of Thomas Hardy's celebrated novel. The cinematographer is Vinterberg's collaborator on The Hunt, Charlotte Bruus Christensen, and she's confirming in these images that the talent we noticed in her framing in that film was no fluke. Alas, as good as I expect this to be, Tom Sturridge and Carey Mulligan sure ain't no Terence Stamp and Julie Christie, but then who ever could be?
