- 3 hr 30 min
In a masterful adaptation of the great novel by DH Lawrence, the intrepid director Ken Russell presents the controversial story of a woman torn between a husband who has been injured in an accident in War who becomes impotent and the stormy love that is born between her and her land keeper. In the role of the sensual and most beautiful Constance Chatterley, Joely Richardson overflows divine and natural sexuality, and unleashes a passionate madness of love and desire with her new lover, Oliver Mellors to whom gives life the actor Sean Bean. The story takes place in the early 1900s in an estate in England, overcoming sexual taboos of the era, imposed by society and discovering step by step the explicit sexuality and freedom to feel, the movie Lady Chatterley comes knocking down the hidden and repressed feelings of a woman who lives an immense unhappiness, and a terrible loneliness that afflicts her unique beauty. When Connie first arrives at the family estate and meet Oliver, the attraction between them was immediate, Lady Chatterley soon discovers emotions never felt before and awakens into a new world of passion in the arms of her beloved Oliver. A film full of sensuality and passion, betrayal and intense love, Lady Chatterley refreshes the screen with scenes of unusual magnetism, taking the audience on the edge of delirium, in this superb adaptation, and beyond all expectation, Director Russell scores a resounding success. Once Sir Clifford Chatterley returns wounded from World War I, Constance's sex life comes to an end, even above the tremendous love that he feels for her. Gradually, Connie is giving in to an intense passion that will change the way she view life forever. A woman free of ties and inhibitions, the movie Lady Chatterley manages to steal the heart not only of Oliver, but of all the spectators, with an insatiable desire and a wild sexual thirst but at once divine and sublime, Connie becomes a happy woman in love, but torn between two men, filled only by a passion that burns even her soul. This film reflects not only the original tendency to topple the strict sexual taboos, but also directs its focus to the social differences of those times; Lady Chatterley is a film worthy of appreciation, and intelligent enjoyment. With a first class cast, this film is clearly one to remember for its powerful sexual content and the superb scene direction from Ken Russell's master mind.
