"The most frankly sensual movie in memory," (Los Angeles Times) Pascale
Ferran's intelligent, deeply moving, and exquisitely photographed Lady
Chatterley brings D.H. Lawrence's most celebrated and notorious literary
work to the screen in a way that "feels bracingly fresh, vital and modern"
(New York Times).
Robbed of intimacy by her blueblood husband's war injuries, Constance
Chatterley (Marina Hands The Barbarian Invasions, The Diving Bell and the
Butterfly) longs for the emotional fulfillment and physical passion that
her marriage lacks. When she espies the gamekeeper Parkin (Jean-Louis
Coullo'ch) unselfconsciously bathing, stripped to the waist amidst the
beauty of nature, she experiences a sexual awakening unlike anything she has
ever dared to desire. Though separated by the boundaries of social
convention, rough-hewn Parkin and high-bred Lady Chatterley unite in a love
that is simultaneously innocent and erotic, a spiritual connection that
transcends personal inhibitions and class prejudices.
