Movie Info

This adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterly's Lover stars Sylvia Kristel as Constance Chatterly, the young wife of an emotionally distant aristocrat in 1910's England, who becomes only less accessible to his spouse when he loses the use of his legs in World War I. He gives her leave to take up a lover, but when Constance turns to the bed of the low-born groundskeeper, Mellors (Nicholas Clay), she not only discovers what passionate lovemaking is really like, but also experiences actual intimacy and love for the first time, leading to a dramatic love triangle, and a bevy of subtext about classism and emotional freedome. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

  • It's no use comparing the book and movie versions of Lady Chatterley's Lover. They do not exist in comparable terms. They have nothing to do with one another.

    An average romantic drama, but not much happens for most of the movie. It's okay.

    Good, beautifully love story and an erotic masterpiece with <i>Emmanuelle</i> sex goddess Sylvia Kristel.
