Christie has few real opportunities to branch out of her rather muted and pouty lead.

A stunning-looking Julie Christie running about Thomas Hardy's countryside is the major excuse for John Schlesinger's under-dramatized picture postcard.

Pictorially excessive but dramatically barren.

Thomas Hardy was not the most dynamic novelist in English literature, but this sluggish 1967 film still does him a serious disservice.

This is a predictable story that Schlesinger struggles to keep fresh and moving.

Alan Bates, in a change of pace, is the loyal shepherd. Terence Stamp is a suitably vile Sgt. Troy, and Peter Finch makes Boldwood strong and honorable in his love for Bathsheba.

Finch, Bates, Stamp and particularly Christie are all mesmerising, while Nic Roeg's cinematography and the outdoor settings are breathtaking.

[Schlesinger] displays the best sense of Victorian time and place since David Lean in Great Expectations.

Thomas Hardy's novels move with the rhythm of the seasons and so does this classic 1967 adaptation, filmed by John Schlesinger with an expansive sweep and pace.
