Critics reviews

Though none of the three versions of D.H. Lawrence’s tale of a woman’s affair with her impotent husband’s gamekeeper have aged particularly well, Ferran’s adaptation restores its subversive core. Excising the novel’s motor-mouthed, old-fashioned philosophical ramblings and goofy interpretation of a lower-class Midlands accent, the film gives primacy to the physical, both human and environmental.

Ferran wished to avoid the heavy philosophical, moral and political discourse of the final work; what drew her to Lawrence’s draft was its more immediate, livelier sense of erotic intimacy. By enhancing this element, she has made an odd, beguiling, rather sexy film.
