 Merchant Ivory Productions :: Quartet
Adapted from the 1928 autobiographical novel by Jean Rhys, Quartet is the story of a love quadrangle between a complicated young West Indian woman named Marya (played by Isabelle Adjani), her husband Stefan (Anthony Higgins), a manipulative English art patron named Heidler (Alan Bates), and his painter wife Lois (Maggie Smith).
The film is set in the Golden Age of Paris, Hemingway's "moveable feast" of cafe culture and extravagant nightlife, glitter and literati: yet underneath is the outline of something sinister beneath the polished brasses and brasseries.
Smith shines in one of her most memorable roles: she imbues Lois with a Katherine-of-Aragon impotent rage, as humiliated as she is powerless in the face of her husband's choices.

This DVD is part of the third wave of the Merchant Ivory Collection, produced by Home Vision Entertainment in association with The Criterion Collection, and under the supervision of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory.
She allows the simple, character-driven drama to speak for itself sans the sort of writerly flourishes that would be an irresistible temptation for most screenwriters whose characters are flitting about in the milieu of the Lost Generation.
In the Conversation with the Filmmakers interview segment that accompanies the feature on the DVD, we learn that Jhabvala was skeptical about adapting Quartet for the screen because she found none of the characters likable.

 FAME Review: Quartet: Alison Brown   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
QUARTET is Alison Brown's fourth recording as a group leader.
In addition, QUARTET manages to display several facets of Alison Brown's classical, world music, and jazz influences to the extent that there's really nothing here to remind you of her bluegrass roots.
The quartet also reprises the opening tune from Brown's first solo recording, SIMPLE PLEASURES (1990), with their sequel rendition of "Mambo Banjo (Revisited)." In comparing the two versions back to back, one is struck by how effectively Brown has absorbed the nuances of her varied musical influences over the intervening six years.
