It was nothing like the wuthering heights I had read. I didn't like it at all. It was purchased to help my daughter with her studies and I chose because it was the latest version. It was a mistake, I have since ordered another version produced by the BBC and which I believe resembles the classic novel.

This adaptation was terrible

A main portion of the book is dedicated to Heathcliff's revenge. Marrying Isabella, having a child with her. And then Cathy having a child, dying in labour and then Heathcliff exacts revenge on Cathy's daughter by forcing her to marry his son.

This book goes as far as Cathy dying (which happens in the first half of the book) and then the movie ends - there is no mention of the baby that she carried, or of anything which is the key element in the book.

Wuthering heights (despite media's interpretation) is not a romance, there is no romance in the book, it's a book about Heathcliff's revenge and everything before his revenge is merely the reason why he's angry.

Yes Heathcliff loved Cathy, but that is purely what this adaptation focused on.

Also, there are several occasions where live dogs are hung by the neck, and you can watch them squirm and struggle for life - even if these dogs 'were not harmed' it's traumatic to watch as it is real.

Terrible Movie - the Tom Hardy version is much better

Format: DVD
Up front I have to say I have never read the book upon which this is based, or seen any other film adaptation. Thus I cannot make comparisons, or comment on how closely the film follows the book or captures its spirit.

The film tells the story of Heathcliff, found orphaned in Liverpool and brought to live with the Earnshaw family in North Yorkshire. Heathcliff soon forms a passionate bond with his foster sister Cathy, whilst being tormented by everyone else. The film tells the tale of the passion between Heathcliff and Cathy, and the destructive effect it has both on them and those around them.

It is a great story, and one that should make for a great film. Unfortunately the director and writer seem more interested in flashy camera work, fancy editing and imposing a modern morality on certain aspects than actually trying to get a sense of character across, and much seems to be lost. I got no real sense of the passion between Cathy and Heathcliff, despite the best attempts of the actors. Due to the direction their attempts at delivering depth of feeling and passion came across more as petulance. The film seems to be lost in a morass of shaky handheld camera work and fast edits that left me feeling slightly bewildered and with a large headache by the end. Also, when a director spends so much time showing extreme close-ups of insects (which crop up with a monotonous regularity) rather than telling the story you know you're in trouble. Especially when it is set in the Yorkshire Dales and there is so much gorgeous scenery to film if you run out of other ideas.

The writer has tried to update some of the dialogue, and it sticks out like a sore thumb. I know in Emily Bronte's novel Heathcliff is depicted as being foreign, possibly from the East.

Format: DVD
Andrea Arnold's interpretation of the Bronte classic wins a few points for an attempt at presenting the story with a much more elemental and stripped down approach, but unfortunately really does fall quite flat due to some poor performances and a throughly anachronistic clash of styles and themes.

Arnold really wants us to smell the mud, study the movements of animals and get soaking wet in the endless rain, and there is some very interesting camera work, much of it handheld, utilised to try and achieve this. She really does come horribly unstuck, however, with a very ill-judged 4:3 frame, which robs the landscape of any depth of character or dimension and renders the humans characters as busy blurs within the frame for most of the running time. Her decision not to use any music on the soundtrack is also a mistake as the sound of rain or heavy breathing which fills up the spaces between dialogue becomes rather dully repetitive within the first 20 minutes of the film, and numbingly tedious thereafter.

The real let down of the film though is in the script and performances. Whilst realism is attempted through accurate regional accents, the dialogue and the very half-hearted attempt to lend it any feeling by the actors whatsoever, is absolutely dreadful. Whoever thought that adding in a stream of four-letter words and constant racial slurs was going to bring any added authenticity was sorely mistaken - this, as well as sentences that lack any sense of rhythm or phrasing, is where the film is most at fault, and there are horrid jarring notes of anachronism in practically every scene. Trying to force modern concerns and speech patterns into a classic gothic romance just kills it stone dead.

Format: DVD
Andrea Arnold's adaptation of Wuthering Heights has raised the bar for all Bronte period dramas from now on. The trappings we have come to expect from period dramas- the classical background music, the lavish costumes, the formal language- have been stripped away to leave the stark humanity of the story itself and the setting of the Yorkshire Moors.

This film shows the children playing violent dominance games in the mud, rubbing it over each others faces, literally pullling hair out and licking bloody wounds clean. And throughout it all you can hear the wind howling over the moors. And closeups of the skeletons of birds and insects crawling through the mud. You know you're watching a potrayal of real weather in yorkshire when theres mud and torrential rain everywhere.I've never felt so emotionally attached to the actors of cathy and heathcliff before. The transition from the child to adult actors felt very seamless and natural despite my usual dislike for this method. The chemistry was electric and the children hardly spoke.

I forgot I was watching a film at some points. Because it was so intimate and there was no background music the whole thing felt very voyeuristic. This is actually what makes the film sometimes uncomfortable or uneasy viewing and why it succeeds for me so well. That feeling is so easily lost in previous adaptations of this book. With Arnold's version it feels like we have stepped right into not the book of Wuthering Heights but the story itself.
