Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Paralyzed from the waist down due to a war injury, Sir Clifford Chatterley (Shane Briant) urges his wife, Constance (Sylvia Kristel), to take a lover to satisfy her physical needs. But when she begins an intense affair with a man of shockingly lower class ­ the virile and rugged gamekeeper Mellors (Nicholas Clay) ­ the unexpected stirring of passions will rock not only their marriage, but all of society as well.

Amazon.com

Back in the day when full-frontal nudity and soft-core eroticism were still part of the mainstream release strategy, Lady Chatterley's Lover made the rounds as a higher-toned slab of hubba-hubba. For this opus, Sylvia Kristel, the Dutch-born beauty who had bared all and gained a following in Emmanuelle, teamed up again with that film's director, Just Jaeckin,. Based on the once-scandalous D.H. Lawrence novel (and at least partly adapted by Marc Behm), Lady Chatterley casts Kristel as the wife of a paralyzed nobleman (former Hammer star Shane Briant). He can no longer make love to his sexy missus, and so gives his blessing to the idea of her having an affair--although the reality of the Lady getting it on with the manor's rough-hewn gamekeeper (Nicholas Clay) is not what he had in mind. The result is much closer to a bodice-ripping romance novel than to Lawrence (stick with Ken Russell's Women in Love for Lawrence erotica), and the sex scenes have the customary tropes of crackling fire and dancing in the rain. The sheer dullness of the production might be the price one must pay for getting to the hot parts, of which there are plenty. --Robert Horton

Customer Reviews

I like the Gothic qualities of this film.
Trish
What a disappointment, the acting was ok and that was about the only thing that was right with this production.
Bill
I think the story line is good and from what I have heard fairly accurate.

A mainstay on HBO around 1982-83, "Lady Chatterly's Lover" is a soft-core romance, but not a sleazy one. It wasn't successful in theaters, maybe because nobody knew what audience it was targeted to (surely not literature addicts or art-house filmgoers; maybe Sylvia Kristel/"Emmanuelle" fans). Consequently, it was popular on cable and video, where viewing privacy can elicit whatever reactions necessary (mostly giggles). It isn't very well-made, but the acting is decent and the passion is convincing. The editing is sloppy, with some sequences, and the ending, cut short, but it does have a few steamy scenes, frisky nudity, and good location filming.

One of the most important elements of this film is the sense of real life sensibilities it captures. The qualities of longing and frustration are beautifully captured by Sylvia Crystal as Lady Chatterley, the wife of a dashing but complex husband played by Shane Briant with combinations of bravado and self centeredness beneath a handsome figure who is logged into his class background and behavior patterns allowing little room for natural love and responsiveness. While Lady Chatterley holds firmly at first to her devotion to her husband she cannot withstand the raw sensuality of Nicholas Clay as the gardner on the estate. Nicholas Clay likes to show his butt and I am reminded of another film, "Evil Under The Sun" where he tittilates the viewer with his rather voluptuous posterior while walking on the beach. This aside, he more than captures the "real world" personality of his class and attitudes juxtaposed with Lord Chatterley's strict upperclass ones. I felt the "eye brows" of Lord Chatterley were a bit "over stated" in make up and this had the effect giving him a drama queen demeanor and somehow a little "campy." But all in all I thoroughly enjoyed the film for its showing nudity where nudity seemed perfectly called for without teasing and overly gauzy effects which is sometimes such a bore . Maybe the film is not what one would call a "religious experience" but why should all films be that anyway. It is beautifully filmed and the production values are first rate and it makes a sometimes complicated story line believable without too much contempt for the viewer, especially with D. H. Lawrence's reputation. Above all I felt it captured the anguish and fear which contibute to decisions that drastically alter the people that make them.

And I like looking a Nicholas Clay's butt.

This 1981 (not '82 as suggested) film adaptation of the D. H. Lawrence classic is an enjoyable B-ride if only for its panoramic scenery of foggy London and the sexually-charged engaging performances of its stars. Indeed, Sylvia Kristel (Emmanuelle) and the late Nicholas Clay (Excalibur) bring nothing but skin to their characters of an unlikely duo engaging in a torrid affair. Over an ultra-syrupy score (by Richard Harvey and Stanley Myers), and a fine use of camera work by Robert Fraisse, the two go at it with all their splendor, leaving nothing to the imagination except to wonder if the movie would have been better had a talented cast been involved. Since it isn't but remains enjoyable despite its flaws, this LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER is superficial enough to be camp classic material, which is, as we all know, an important factor for lovers of such films.-----Martin Boucher

Lady Chatterley's Lover ranks up there as one of the most erotic films about true romantic love ever made. Nicholas Clay as Mellors and the stunning Sylvia Kristel as Connie are perfectly matched in this highly charged love story of a woman, whose bourgeois, aristocratic, whiny, insufferable and sadistic husband becomes paralyzed after serving in WWI (even after that it's still impossible to find sympathy for this stuffy clod who is stupid enough to tell his wife to "go find a lover" and subsequently pushes her away emotionally and who is verbally abusive to her as well). Connie winds up finding lust and love with the estate's gamekeeper, played brilliantly by the late Nicholas Clay (tragically, he died of cancer in 2000 at the young age of 53). Clay was arguably one of the most exquisite men to ever grace the silver screen and reveals all to us in this movie (and I am so grateful he does because everything he has is shockingly gorgeous - I rented this movie and after seeing the first scene with him in it I think I cleared the couch in one leap to get to my PC to buy this movie from Amazon). Well-acted with an intense intimacy that most of us will never experience because we are too frightened of it, we are able to feel it all here and drink it in with reckless abandon and without being afraid. Wonderful, lush 1920s period costuming and bucolic English countryside with a Vaughn Williams-esque music score draw you into the story of these lovers, and left me wanting more. From their first spontaneous, lustful encounter (I think my legs actually went numb when I first watched it) to their eventual "courtship," I was engrossed. This story gives me hope that real love between two people, no matter their background or socioeconomic status, does truly exist.Read more ›
