Forget Julie Christie - this is truer to the novel
13 August 1998 | by (Arlington, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful adaption of the great Thomas Hardy novel. Though the 1960's version (starring Julie Christie, Alan Bates,and Terrance Stamp) is gorgeous, this film is not so dated and the performances are in keeping with the original intent of the novelist. All the principles are strong but especially impressive is Nigel Terry's performance as doomed Mr. Boldwood whose love for Bathsheba drives him from hope and new-found happiness to despair and frenzy.

The locations are beautiful - almost another character in the story. The dialects of the locals may be difficult to understand at first but my ear learned to listen. The video version allows for playback of difficult to understand dialog.

Definately worth the 4 hour investment. It made me re-read the novel and enjoy it all over again.
