Product Details

Winner of five Cesars (the French Oscar®) and ranked at the top of numerous 2007 ten best lists when it debuted in America, Pascale Ferran's Lady Chatterley was praised as a filmic adaptation that "found the soul of the celebrated D.H. Lawrence novel" (Los Angeles Times) and "ranks as one of the sexiest, smartest page-to-screen transfers ever made" (Time Out New York). Kino is now proud to present Lady Chatterley in a new, two-part, Extended European Edition featuring nearly an hour of additional material excluded from the film's theatrical cut that explores the emotional and sensual borderlands uniting sex, love, and loyalty with even more intelligence, passion, and power than before. Through extra footage never seen in the US, director Pascale Ferran's "rapturous visual tone poem" (New York Times) becomes both a highly erotic immersion into Lady Chatterley and Parkin's passion and an equally frank and unsentimentally provocative portrayal of a marriage hobbled by war and ultimately torn apart by hypocrisy. Ferran and her cast, led by the award-winning Marina Hands in the title role, Jean-Louis Coulloc'h as Parkin, and Hippolyte Girardot as Sir Clifford Chatterley, dramatize D.H. Lawrence's tug of war between social classes with a narrative precision and poetic detail rivaled only by Lawrence's novel itself.
