A very good movie

For many years, I have been tracking down the movies directed by the great Martin Scorsese, so I absolutely had to watch this movie at some point. And, once again, I wasn't disappointed, that’s for sure. Indeed, I thought it was a very good movie and it is definitely one of the best costume dramas I have ever seen. Unfortunately , it has become one of the most underrated movies directed by Scorsese. Indeed, after making some of the best gangster movies ever, Scorsese decided to completely shift gear and directed a costume drama. And you know what? It worked. In my opinion, it is a gorgeous and really fascinating picture. Usually, I really have a hard time to relate with such characters but, here, they managed to make me care about them and what they were going through. Of course, it helps when you have Daniel Day-Lewis in your cast... Day-Lewis was, as usual, terrific but Michelle Pfeiffer and Winona Ryder should also be credited for their performances. To conclude, I thought it was a very good movie, one of the best in this genre, and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Scorsese's work.
