Literate, well-acted French-language adaptation of the second draft (there were three in all) of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover" concerning the young wife (Marina Hands) of a World War I paralytic mine owner (Hippolyte Girardot), and her furtive romance with the lower-class gamekeeper (Jean-Louis Coulloc'h) employed by her husband. Director and co-writer Pascale Ferran recreates the 1920s English milieu impeccably, and though she avoids sensationalism (the sexual elements are not glamorized) and underscores the class conflict at the heart of the narrative, viewers must approach with caution. Subtitles. Adultery, several sexual encounters -- most with the couple fully clothed but some with full frontal nudity -- the acceptability of divorce and a graphic description of war. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
