Critics reviews

What makes Bogdanovich’s adaptation of the Henry James novella so extraordinary is both its faithfulness to the original text, and the cleverness of its divergences, which mostly entail adapting descriptive passages to dialogue, and inventing new dialogue. But the director also isn’t afraid to come up with a few narrative inventions of his own.

Bogdanovich took enormous risks in imbuing “Daisy Miller” with elements of comedy that range from the raucous to the subtly off-kilter. The results make for astonishing insights into the world of Henry James.

The confounding thing about his Daisy Miller is that it comes across as neither fish nor fowl: too indifferent to Jamesian nuance to qualify as appreciation, too faithful (in terms of the overall plotting and dialogue in Frederic Raphael ’s script) to gain credence as an attack on the original — and yet too amorphous and uncertain in its own terms to register as an independent and autonomous work.
