beautiful film
3 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The actual filming of the people, interiors and landscapes in this film is wonderful. There is hardly a frame that could not be taken out of context and seen as a "picture".

The numerous sex scenes are very expressive of the relationship of the characters at that moment in their lives and also, I think, of the times. The story is by D.H. Lawrence and as such should be criticized in the context of his writing; the characters are making wrong and bad choices and some are flawed to the point of caricature. The film itself does its best to bring this sprawling tale together and to give life to the rather unbelievable mother who seems to ruin the lives of her two sons and her feckless husband.

Anyone who enjoys what used to be called costume drama should find this a very satisfying watch.
