5.0 out of 5 stars A sensual delight!, 30 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Chatterley Affair [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
'The Chatterley Affair' has it all. Tension, humour, gravity and above all, pleasure. Sexual pleasure that is. Descriptions of sexual acts - depicted in D.H. Lawrence's 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' - prevail during the trial, in order to reach a solid guilty or not-guilty. The same sexual acts are put into practise by two jurors, when they meet up after court is adjourned. They discover they don't love each other, but love to make love to one another. There is sexual tension between the two right from the start and before long, they experience freely with what Penguin Books is about to publish unabridged. We - the audience - are made privy to their bedroom-escapades. Rafe Spall and Louise Delamare exquisitely portrayed the two lovers on their quest to physical fulfillment. Not one blatant pornographic scene ever occurred. Just tender love-making, from which partners derived enormous joy - not only for themselves but also from pleasing the other. They talked openly - with no holds barred - about enhancing their adventure to new levels. Their encounters were immense sensual encounters. Just like listening to music, eating good food or drinking fine wine can be a sensual experience. After all, we are equipped with senses, so why not use them?
Back to the trial; it was a delight to watch people - from 50 years back - put forward arguments against or in favour of the unabridged 'Lady'. What struck me was people beginning to speak more freely about sex. I almost could feel a new era was dawning. Come to think, this is not very far from the truth. The 60's were just around the corner. I put this deja vu I experienced to brilliant directing by James Hawes. He did a fine job getting across the awakening reluctance to adhere to strict rules from previous decades.
