Helena Bonham-Carter and Julian Sands in A Room with A View by James Ivory, 1985

This is undoubtedly one of my most favorite romantic scenes from the movie A Room with a View, which after all those years I still enjoy watching. Helena Bonham-Carter was so young and beautiful and Julian Sands so enigmatic.

The costumes for A Room With a View were designed by Jenny Beavan and John Bright, who won both an Oscar and a BAFTA for Best Costume Design.

    I´m not strong enough to face that lady’s light,
    I don´t find shelter in dark places nor hours of the night
    Fate forces me to gaze on her as she appears,
    through eyes already injured, half-blind with tears,
    knowing too well my true desire, my shame:
    to go beyond her light, into her flame…

    “The gamesome wind among her tresses plays,
    And curleth up those growing riches short;
    Her spareful eye to spread his beams denays,
    But keeps his shot where Cupid keeps his fort;
    The rose and lily on her cheek assays
    To paint true fairness out in bravest sort,
    Her lips, where blooms naught but the single rose,
    Still blush, for still they kiss while still they close…”
