On the 7th August 1922, Katherine Mansfield wrote to her husband, John Middleton Murry, a "farewell" letter. It contained some cruel accusations against him and ended: “All my manuscripts, books, papers, letters I leave to you. Go through them one day, dear love, publish as little as possible and tear up and burn as much as possible. You know my love of tidiness. Have a clean sweep, Bogey, and leave all fair – will you?”… Five months later, Katherine Mansfield died… Murry went on to build a career and a fortune on releasing for publication – gradually – the huge quantity of letters and journals which were in, or came into, his possession as her literary executor. He was within his legal rights in doing so.

“Filmed entirely in France, this elegiac story about John Middleton Murry, the husband of New Zealand writer Katherine Mansfield, returning to places where they’d lived together to oversee the publishing of a book based on her letters to him, is a sober, affecting experience… John Gielgud, playing and elderly man of letters, returns to France to meet his publisher (Atkine). The trip brings back memories of his life with Mansfield, memories made more painful when he meets Atkine’s mistress, Marie (Jane Birkin), who not only resembles his long-dead wife, but is also a New Zealander. … Lushly photographed, the film is as gentle and nuanced as Mansfield’s own writings, and the scenes between Gielgud and Birkin play with subtlety and insight… This is a refreshing, intelligent film… It’s a class act all the way.” —Variety, 22 May 1985
