In many ways the last (which is also the first) we see of Emma as in a beautiful gown she languidly expires alone a bed of fallen autumn leaves sums up the merits and shortcoming of the film. It’s elegantly composed and framed but as an image of a tragic death it is too picturesquely detached to hold much sway over us.
