4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Passion, 11 Oct. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Wuthering Heights [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
This 1992 screen adaptation, by Peter Kosminsky, of Emily Bronte’s novel, Wuthering Heights, covers all the chapters of the book (unlike the previous versions). Unfortunately, the movie should use at least another 90min to be complete, without then, more then 30 years of narration are difficult to follow, especially, by someone who haven’t read the book. But Kosminsky still made (in my opinion) the best adaptation ever of this novel, since the lack of time is well compensated by a great cast, amazing scenery and melodies by Ryuichi Sakamoto, a true artist.
In this story about passion, hate and revenge, Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes are Cathy and Heathcliff, wild characters whose doomed love is stronger then death. Fiennes really makes a perfect Heathcliff, improving his rough temper and Binoche, although it may seem too much, plays both Cathy, and her daughter, Catherine. She’s a great actress worthy of the challenge and it worked perfectly well. Other actors such as, Jeremy Northam, Janet McTeer, Simon Shepard and Sophie Ward also help to bring the novel to the screen, making a must see movie, for anyone who loves a beautiful love story, well performed. And the most important thing, the movie really keeps faithful to the essential of the immortal tale.
