Lady Chatterley

This French-language adaptation of the second of DH Lawrence's three versions of his novel is stirring in all senses. Any hint of cliché in the familiar tale of the lonely lady revived by her relationship with the gamekeeper is overcome by the film's splendid photography and execution.
