Trivia

Andrea Arnold borrowed a canary from Yorkshire canary breeder Brian Keenan to feature in the film as a pet of the main characters. According to Keenan, "Ms Arnold prefers to film entirely on location and aims for as much local flavour and authenticity as possible. So the obvious choice of canary for Wuthering Heights just had to be a Yorkshire in a genuine show cage - nothing else would do." See more »

Painful
20 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a film about domestic violence, racism, cycles of abuse. It contains many scenes involving the infliction of pain. This is quite apart from the love story. So why did it leave my partner and I so unemotionally affected, apart from the rush of relief at leaving the cinema?

Wuthering Heights started well for me; I thought I was going to enjoy the experience of wild moorland, naturalism, authentic dirt, etc. Unfortunately, too little attention seemed to be paid to the quality of some of the cast's acting (some of which was, frankly, embarrassing) and after the nth roll on the wet moorland grass I began to lose patience with the lack of attention to the narrative detail.

Yes, the moors looked fantastic. Yes, we got that life was grim.

But the affectation of the hand-held camera is a metaphor for the film as a whole. It wobbles about and makes you feel a bit nauseous. And then it does it over and over again and again until you want to beg for mercy.
