Le médecin (as Jacques de Bock)


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. Written by <>

Lady Chatterley is English
26 February 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I had a great pleasure to see the movie by Pascale Ferran. Several years ago I read the book by D. H. Lawrence, I discover that Lawrence wrote three times his book. Pascale Ferran chose the second one "Jess Thomas and Lady Jane", with an explicit title! The end is not very happy and gives not very much hope to the heroes. I find the adaptation very faithful to the book. The movie won 5 prizes at the French Cesars on the 24 of February 2007 : best movie, best actress (Marina Hands, who has an English father), best adaptation, best costumes, best photo. In spite of its length, the movie is never boring. It shows that it is still possible to make movies of high quality. Marina Hands is gorgeous as Constance Chatterley and radiates happiness in love. For me she is really English.
