Storyline

Sir Clifford has returned from the Great War to his estate near Sheffield, paralyzed from the waist down. Lady Constance, his young wife, cares for him, but she's lifeless, enervated. Her physician prescribes the open air, and she finds a quiet retreat at the hut - the workplace - of Parkin, the estate's gamekeeper. The rhythms of nature awaken Connie - daffodils, pheasant chicks - and soon she and Parkin become lovers. She's now radiant. Parkin, too, opens up. Class distinctions and gender roles may be barriers to the affair becoming more. Connie's trip to France, with her father and sister, bring the lovers to a nuanced resolution.

Excellent Movie
15 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never read the book, but have always been fascinated by the story, which is, of course, famously known.

Having never seen the other movie adaptations, I can't compare. However, I thought this version was terrific. Maybe it is more of a "woman's movie" but I could put myself into their shoes throughout the story. The initial love scenes were so much more sensual than in today's US movies where nothing is left to the the imagination. My favorite scene is of them unabashedly dancing in the rain, naked, happy, free and all with their boots on!!! It might be too "fairytale-ish" for some, but I say "Bravo!" and thank you Pascale Feran for creating this visual and sensual masterpiece.
