Press
"Fresh and charming"--The Guardian (UK)

"Beautiful, sensual, and extremely witty"--The Times (UK)

"As erotic as it is thoughtful, the production is dense, layered, and gorgeous."--PopMatters.com

"A veritable celebration"--Film.com

"Rebecca Night is fetching, frisky and wise as Fanny Hill"--Hartford Courant

"It is baffling why something this good took a year to arrive in the U.S."--Connecticut Post

"Grade A-"--Entertainment Weekly

"Delightful and unabashedly naughty...Rebecca Night is superb."--San Francisco Chronicle

"The production is lovely and Andrew Davies' screenplay is smart and sexy."--Movie City News

"Beautifully photographed with wonderful period detail, the overt atmosphere of ever-present sensuality is still eye-brow raising but necessary for the tale."--The Desert Sun (Palm Springs)

"The whole production -- two episodes spread across two hours, which aired originally on BBC4 and is made available to American audiences for the first time with this DVD -- is a veritable celebration, and a sweetly romantic one at that, of sex and love, and of sex as a fundamental part of life separate from love sometimes, too."--FlikFilosopher
