Actress Sylvia Kristel and director Just Jaeckin, after making Emmanuelle (1974), had not spoken to each other for about seven years until this film project came along. The rift had developed after each had spoken publicly about the other whilst doing press publicity for Emmanuelle (1974). See more »

Pretty typical Golan & Globus production with better than average art direction and cinematography. The estate is beautiful--as is Sylvia Kristel--but the adaptation is flat and whole thing feels flabby.
A bit of sex goes with the story, of course, and it's done well enough; but it's nothing like Kristel's soft core films. The acting is competent thruout, and the filmmakers take pains to maintain the essence of the English class struggle. But some of the jealousy and social indignation feels contrived.
I loved Lord Chatterly's gas-powered wheelchair for zipping around the grounds, altho why he didn't install an elevator in the mansion is a mystery.
