  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Un film raté, mais une adaptation intelligente, malgré le jeu agaçant de certains comédiens... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    I liked this adaptation of Rivette.

  3. fluforget's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    just not - i.e. not this against-the-flow experiment of cold acting vs. fiery/romantic story however out-dated it is.

  4. Tim Chandler's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    This was pretty disappointing.

  5. Jason's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    There is always a coldness (a byproduct of precision?) that accompanies Rivette's stagy staging of novels. And he is usually dealing in hotblooded content. The idea of a pristine surface covering a tumultuous seething chaos speaks to me, and Rivette does it very well. (Imagine Andrzej Żuławski's version of Wuthering Heights, w/ people throwing one another off walls etc.) Unfortunately Fabienne Babe is pretty awful.

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Quel jeu et quelle direction d'acteurs ... comme Kazan ... les personnages se cherchent et s'affrontent dans un huis clos particulièrement dur ... et quelque peu trop théatral en 2ème partie. Great acting and direction of actors ... as with Kazan characters seek and compete in a particularly hard way behind closed doors ... and somewhat too theatrical in part 2.

  8. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Auteur. Bad critics about this work: DON'T compare. This is cinema, another language.

  9. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Lack of everything: good acting, good shooting, atmosphere, engagement... Weak adaptation overall...

  10. João Eça's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    It's obvious that Rivette has absolute control and conscience over everything in this film: but for me most of it is wrong. A story so full of passion, romanticism and supernatural ressonance cannot be treated with such realistic and inexpressive forms. Rivette reduces everything to the clash and movement of bodies within the frame, but most times a close-up would contain all the passion required. A matter of choice.

  12. John Baldwin's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Though beautifully shot, this adaptation just doesn't work for me. Though Fabienne Babe is fascinating to look at as Catherine, it is Sandra Montaigu as Helene who gives the masterful performance (as well as playing the only likable character).

  13. Marisa Garreffa's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Decidedly unlikeable portrayals. Tiresome.

  14. Myhar's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    "inquadrature esemplari e una gestualità quasi teatrale" sono la parte migliore del film assieme al coro di voci bulgare nelle (rare) musiche; questa trasposizione non mi ha soddisfatto, troppo cerebrale.

  15. msmichel's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Rivette and Bonitzer removed the romance in their adaptation of 'Wuthering Heights' concentrating on pain and misery instead. The decision to make Catherine a vain, opportunistic, frail creature sinks the picture especially with weak lead performances by Babe and Belvaux. Rivette's framing and mise-en-scene stand out as does cinematography by Berta. Not the worst Bronte adaptation but certainly not one of the better.

  16. Justin Vicari's rating of the film Wuthering Heights

    Rivette captures Emily Bronte's demented nursery of wise servants and foolish masters perfectly, because it turns out that her characters were really Rivette people all along: private, sad, feeling like they're going crazy, feeling set up and unready for life, behaving badly now and then but only to feel free, and always paying for it. This is a masterpiece.
