“The Wings of the Dove succeeds where virtually every other film translation of a James novel has stumbled... This magnificent film conveys an intimation of what values count the most, of what really matters, but it is also far too intelligent and sympathetic to human frailty to spell them out. You feel them most of all in the characters' unbridgeable silences.”
