5.0 out of 5 stars Tragic and tormenting, 20 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Jude [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
I own the UK version (Region 2) DVD as I it was available in the US. This movie is always so hard to watch as you feel to sad and drained afterwards. Kate is fantastic as Sue and you see her potential and her spirit shine that once shined so brightly, begin to dim through the course of her life. Chris Ecclestone reveals an inhibited passion for Sue hindered by what seems a cursed life, and you can really feel the intensity between Jude and Sue. The movie is a favourite of mine for its dramatic intensity and character complexities. Thomas Hardy fans may disagree with the screen adaption but I think it is very well done as it is a dark and depressing story and has a pace to keep your spirits up long enough to finish the film. The lead actors completely make this movie bearable for the fine and polished performances. The DVD has been re-mastered and you can hear the difference especially in the scene where Sue goes to see Jude and the rain is falling in the background. I really would have liked to see interviews with the director and the actors and some more extras but all in all, superb and sombre.
