October 1921: Constance, Lady Chatterley, and her husband Clifford have been living at Wragby Hall on the Chatterley estate in the heart of Englands mining country for a year or two.
Four years earlier, and just a few months after they married, Clifford, who was serving as a lieutenant in the British Army, returned from Flanders permanently paralysed from the waist down. Winter has descended on everything. Constance whiles away monotonous days, trapped by her marriage to Clifford and her sense of duty. Sad and indifferent to everything, she feels her vital energy gradually ebbing out of her. Her sister Hilda rushes to her aid. She demands that Clifford employ a nurse to look after him, taking the burden off Constance. Mrs Bolton moves into Wragby Hall, and Constances new life begins.
Spring time soon comes around. Outside, nature awakens, accompanying Constance on her first walks in the forest. But the forest is also the domain of Parkin, the gamekeeper of the estate. Parkin leads a life of self-imposed solitude in his house in the heart of the forest. The film is the story of his relationship with Constance. It traces the profound impact he has on Constances life; their first awkward encounters and their subsequent discovery of each other; her slow sensual awakening, and his lengthy journey back to life.
Following their initial meeting, the road towards true love and fulfilment is a long one, during which, through their relationship, they will reinvent their entire world.

Films like this only come along once in a while.
i therefore watched it as a version of 'lady chatterley's lover'. i observed that the gamekeeper's character was quite different from the book, as were various other details, and in a big way, the end. nevertheless, i was quite prepared to accept all this, in spite of being a fan of the book, as i accepted the makers' words that this was 'based on'. in fact i quite enjoyed the differences i have already cited, in this version. and the gradually developing affair is beautifully handled and portrayed.
filmically, largely sans intrusive musical score, and taken at a slow burn through wonderful images of nature, it was a pleasure.
subsequently, i discovered that there really is a second book, by lawrence, by this name and containing the differences that appear in the film!
so all the negative reviews here, mainly posited on the dissimilarity to 'lady chatterley's lover', are out of order on two counts. (being 'based on', and even actually a different book.)
as for the complaints about the characters not being 'beautiful' enough - puh-lease! this minor escape from the media body police was very welcome.
and adjacent to this, the complaint that he wasn't attractive enough to warrant her response - again, puh-lease! she was a passionate woman, living without sex and the touch of a man, his body turned her on (her, dear viewer, it didn't have to turn you on), and he was the only feasible sexual prospect in her world! so - a bit fanciful in either version, but it is fiction, and beside that, sex can be a powerful drive to strange/ dangerous behaviour.
Why do the French always deal with sex with such consummate ease without a trace of titilation?I just think they are more adult and Lawrence was done justice through this French filter.Incidentally I don't know what John Thomas and Lady Jane changes from the original published novel but it seemed to enhance them as people.LCL was after all one of Lawrence's lesser novels but was meant to be a major attack on industrialization with Constance finding renewal through her individual sexuality,which overturned the older social order,established as it was on wealth and aristocracy and a hierarchical class system.
Lady Constance Chatterley (played beautifully by Marina Hands, an Anglo-French actress) is pure, guileless, warmhearted and sensitive. These qualities deepen our interest in her the more we see and feel her isolation and loneliness at Wragby Hall, the estate of her husband Sir Clifford Chatterley. Her compassion for Sir Clifford, a former officer wounded and paralyzed in The Great War, is real. She attends to him daily by helping how she can, dining with him, reading to him, bathing him. She is, among other things, young, beautiful, feminine, gentle and patient. He loves to see her and be in her calming, cheering, charming presence. She knows this and accepts her role devotedly. He was disabled before she married him, so the role of supportive wife is evidently what she wanted.
But time passes and a certain tension begins to build in her. Thereafter it also builds between them. The platonic love of devotion that she thought would sustain her gradually cannot. Her body is whole, healthy, fertile and voluptuous, whereas his is disfigured and emaciated. The cause of this tension is the presence of another man on Sir Clifford's property, the gamekeeper Parkin (known as Mellors in the final version of the novel). Parkin is Sir Clifford's opposite. He is virile and earthy. He has strong shoulders and hands. He chops wood, hammers nails, shoots rabbits and pheasants. Connie sees this and also sees his character.Read more ›
