Format: VHS Tape
I am a fan of Emily Bronte. Her book, "Wuthering Heights", is probably the most misunderstood book of it's time. This made-for-TV version is a timeless classic in itself.
The only problem with it is that people try to humanize Heathcliff too much. His character was not as humane as people seem to think. The man was evil in its purest form, and Robert Cavanagh plays him to almost perfection. I'm sorry, I'm a huge fan of Fiennes as well and he was a horrible Heathcliff!
Orla Brady was the only actress that I think portrayed Cathy as she really was. Her ability to go from sunshine to madness in a single facial expression is stunning.
Yes, the movie was choppy. If you haven't read the book, you probably won't understand some of what's going on. You'll get the drift, though. Then again, if you haven't read the book first you're cheating yourself on the real experience. There are some things that irritated me; scenes were played out with an explanation that differed from the novel and didn't have to. And Nelly was too old in the beginning. But you won't find a closer version to the original work than this one.
It is by far the best Masterpiece Theatre movie of 1998.

I read this book again after having read it back in 1980 and was keen to see it in film. I was most disappointed with this movie. Materpiece Theater is well know for excellence and unfortunately this films depiction of the book fell short. The cast and acting was superb but the film is not completly true to the book. If you haven't read this book, you should. The richness and depth of the characters was not fully developed in this film thus rendering a rather choppy, shallow and disjointed story line. Upon reflection, I don't think film could do this story justice. The characters lives are interwoven is such an intricate and complex way making it difficult to portray that visually. Heathcliff is an evil and complex character. Getting inside his head is best left for the book to portray. Stick with reading the book, you won't be disappointed!

This is the best version of one of my favorite novels. I wish it was available on DVD; why can't the studios start producing wonderful movies like these on DVD I don't understand. I will wait for it to be available on DVD, then I'm sure I won't be the only one interested in purchasing it.

This is an excellent version of Wuthering Heights, and is on DVD in England. Where is our copy, please? Waiting, impatiently!
