As a film, I liked this one much better than the Sophie Marceau (1997) version. Helen McCrory is a stronger actress than Marceau, and she does a good job at portraying Anna’s torment without making her whiny. Unfortunately Kevin McKidd isn’t as hot as Sean Bean, but his performance was quite good. While the costumes were nice, they weren’t as outstanding as the 1997 version. Part of that may be that the film was shot in a lot of closeups, which meant it was always hard to get a good look at the costumes.
