3.0 out of 5 stars Overrated, but not necessarily "terrible" March 11 2011
By Noirdame TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I love "Wuthering Heights" as a book and I enjoy comparing adaptations. What is it about this psychologically dark book written by a brilliant but ill-fated young mid-19th century parson's daughter that compels so many to read, watch and continually adapt it into films, or even write songs about it? Is it just the need to try to capture the essence of this fascinating yet somewhat repellent story about revenge, twisted love, greed and hatred? Or is a desire to top other productions, some kind of contest to come out the winner of the best interpretation of Emily Bronte's colossal (as described by her sister Charlotte) masterpiece? After coming across the 1992 Peter Kosminsky film these questions came to mind even more so than before. Promoted on the back of the DVD cover as the only theatrical movie version to cover the novel's entirety (if only skimming the surface, as completely would be impossible), for me this interpretation of the Bronte novel fell short in many areas and had a less than authentic feel. While the house representing the Heights is obviously fake and constructed specifically for the film, the locations, as appealing to the eyes as they were, did not seem to fit the description in the novel. Along with the usual grumbles (the actors being too old, the timeline for when situations occured in the book), Ralph Fiennes, while undeniably a formidable presence in film, was miscast as Heathcliff - singled out by some as being too "refined" for the role, he comes across as being brutal but lacking the rough and uncouthness of Bronte's anti-hero - especially in the early sequences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful adaptation of great book. May 30 2004
Format:DVD
The English Patient costars Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche star in this brilliant adaptation of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights.
Having just recently read and enjoyed the book, I had a look at this on the weekend. It's very well done. Wonderful cinematography, great acting by Fienne's as Heathcliff has a haunting music score and moves along very nicely. Unfortunately the copy I got was only pan and scan but this one is in widescreen which would look really good.
I'd recommend reading the book first so you have something to compare it to. Considering all the rubbish coming out these days, I'd rather watch Wuthering Heights anytime.
Thanks for reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars adequate Nov. 18 2008
By Poetkitty TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Adequate adaptation - true to the facts of the novel but not the feel. I wanted to see more insanity, teeth gnashing, hair pulling, violence, evil..The location, and sets, and costumes etc, all were good but I wanted it played out with a little more intensity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Period Piece April 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm quite familiar with the book, and I think the actors did a good job depicting its stormy and self-destructive passions. However, I was continually distracted by the poor quality of the sets, costumes, and hairstyles. The lintel of the Wuthering Heights house door--shown close up suspiciously detached from the rest of the house--bears a date of 1501. The house, when shot from outside as a whole, is late Victorian gothic fantasy gingerbread, probably a real mansion built by a wealthy industrialist. Although if the rock garden outside it is real the landscape artist should be shot. The interiors do not relate to the rest of the house, and some--particularly the rude stone fireplace in the kitchen--are probably purpose-built sets. Cathy Earnshaw's box bed appears to have been concocted from a circa 1905 oak wardrobe. The Art Nouveau decoration on the double doors is a dead giveaway. The female leads have purely late 20th-century faces, hairstyles, and mannerisms. "Shot on location on the moors" this film may be. But, although the moors are fine, the rest of the visual aspects will damage the film for viewers who are sensitive to such things.

I waited YEARS for this film to be released on DVD, and it is now one of the brightest gems in my movie collection. If you're looking for the best adaptation of Emily Bronte's novel, then this is the film for you. Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes are perfectly cast as Catherine and Heathcliff, and although they both do a superb job, Fiennes steals the show as Heathcliff. The scenes leading up to and directly following Catherine's death are absolutely heartbreaking, and I cry every time I watch it! Binoche is wonderful in her dual role, and this is the only film version of "Wuthering Heights" that manages to accurately depict the beauty of Bronte's novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cathy.... CATHY...... Feb. 6 2004
Format:DVD
Well, i can't get enough of this film. Angst, unrequited love, heart broken breakdowns and all that with Juliette B to boot: where can you go wrong?
Sadly, in England. "We don't like her French accent" the poms moaned, despite her having voiced the entire film in her second language,, and thankfully without a grating Yorkshire brogue or even worse, a Valleygirl whine. No, really there is nothing wrong with Ms Binoche at all, neither in looks, acting, nor voice.
And Raif ! now you're a superstar, but back then you were just a moody young thing - and perfect for the part.
Scenery is great - music was haunting - direction, as usual, was superb. Kosminsky is probably my favourite director, but he's only done 2 films you might have seen in America - the rest were in England, released over the years. Worth migrating for that alone...
