H. Lawrence novel Lady Chatterly's Lover seemed like kid stuff by the time this 1981 adaptation hit the screens. To pep up Lawrence's tale of an aristocratic woman who conducts an affair with her earthy gamekeeper, soft-core porn specialist Just Jaeckin attempted to convert the material into Emmanuelle Goes to England. To this end, Jaeckin utilized the undraped talents of his Emmanuelle star Sylvia Kristel, who behaves more like a saloon hall gal than the mistress of an 18th-century manor. Lady Sylvia--er, Lady Chatterly--can't get no satisfaction from her paralyzed spouse, so she dallies with low-born Nicholas Clay. As in most other Just Jaeckin films, the production values and photography are exquisite, the dialogue and acting less so. An earlier, more sedate version of Lady Chatterly's Lover was filmed in France in 1959, with Danielle Darrieux and Erno Crisa in the leads. ...Lady Chatterley's Lover (1981) ( L' Amant de lady Chatterley ) ( Lady Chatterley's Liebhaber ) (Blu-Ray)

If you take the film for what it is....well played "adult" entertainment, and do not look for anything too serious, the movie is there to be enjoyed ! There have been many other more "worthy" TV/Film versions of this great novel, if that is what you are looking for !
The film settings do have an authentic feel to them, and the whole tone of the movie is quite "dark", and fairly respectful to this outstanding English author. In my opinion it does not appear overly "sensational", and the strong sexual nature of this classic is handled quite tastefully and with the necessary care. It is a fairly traditional telling of the story, but look elsewhere if you are searching for a version that really does justice to D.H.Lawrence`s great work.
I want to watch it again and think I'll buy it so I have it to watch for the future! :))
However, if you are a 13 year old boy it will probably seem like all your Christmases have come at once.
US DVD released way back to 2005 is in anamorphic widescreen, though it is a flippy with the full screen version on the other side. I ordered from UK Amazon, thought it's the newer version, and it is cheaper and faster. Big Mistake! DON'T BUY THIS DISC!
