I was lulled by the gentleness of the film, and struck by how closely Ferran observes her characters, as well as how modern and subtle her insights are.

extremely suspenseful

More sensuous than raunchy, but a remarkably engrossing adaptation of an early version of the famous Lawrence novel.

Alas...the lady comes across here as a simple-minded girl instead of an achingly vulnerable woman of possibilities.

O que poderia ser mais belo do que testemunhar dois seres humanos redescobrindo a alegria de viver apenas através do prazer originado por seus toques mútuos?

Pascale Ferran's lovely, 161-minute adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's 1928 novel moves with its own unique rhythm.

Full-frontal nudity fights a losing battle for screen time with lingering shots of squirrels, lizards, ferns, moss and other less salacious aspects of the natural world in 'Lady Chatterley,' a movie that is extremely generous toward its characters.

Although the film is capable of sustaining our interest throughout, the viewer may find it lacking in some of the transcendence Lady Chatterley's lust is supposed to inspire.

Excellent performances by everyone involved help you overlook the incongruity of French-speaking actors in traditional English settings.

Devoting three hours to her isn't any more rewarding than two hours would have been.

I can certainly recommend the experience of having seen "Lady Chatterley." The experience of actually seeing it, however -- all 168 leisurely paced minutes of it -- doesn't generate quite as much enthusiasm.

This is an attractive, involving film with an excellent performance from Hands as the sensible woman standing between two men incapable of transcending conventional notions of power and male domination.

Director Pascale Ferran is true to the spirit of the book and gives us an eyeful, of both the glorious countryside and the lovers' physiques.

Though the film always engages -- even at nearly three hours -- it rarely enlightens.

The beautiful scenery complements the intimate scenes even as the story becomes something we've all seen and read in so many books and films. Yet, its candid conversations about sexuality are what places Lawrence's protagonist in a class by herself.

A picture about passion that invites none, a picture far easier to admire than to adore.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 24, 2007
The luxuriously paced period drama is nearly three hours long and feels every bit of it.
