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.

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.Read more ›

Truly, I'm one of those people who believe that a movie CANNOT be absolutely faithful to the novel it is based on. It simply doesn't work that way. A novel and a movie are two totally different things that can hardly be depthly compared. It's all perspective here, and art is for you to see others' perspectives, as well as yours. Ralph Fiennes gave an extremely intense and exhilarating display of passion-as-a-man, and to me, that was the big thing (with exception to the awesome soundtrack and scenery) that buoyed the film. Binoche is fine as Cathy and Catherine, though fundamentally, I couldn't tell the difference between her two performances. I liked the way the lovers' relationship matured (and eventually crept into turmoil) over the course of the movie: at the beginning, they don't seem to care about anything. They were abrupt, impatient kids whose love was green in a way. Fiennes is dark and cold from the beginning, and he gets more and more sumptuously so as he is driven by blind passion. Overall, this is a rather bleak movie, dark but not quite sad, intriguing but not quite graceful. A fine movie for anyone to see, though. Its fearless emotionalism will probably win you over, and truth be told, it is a generally good movie.

Wuthering Heights was one of my favorite books -- when I was a mopey teenager. I loved Heathcliff, beaten like a dog, emotionally crippled, and dirt poor yet overcoming his enemies in the end. I was like the protagonist in Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey" a young women with a fertile (overactive) imagination caught up in romantic and gothic tales. What the writer didn't put in the book I made up in my head. My movie idols were James Mason and Lawrence Olivier -- broody and dark.
The film appears to incorporate every chapter in Ms. Bronte's book, but her book is overly long and overwrought. In the 19th century, the book appealed to middle class women who could read, had servents to do much of their work, knew little of the world outside their own homes, and wanted a cheap gothic thrill, no matter how badly written, to lift their everyday constrained and boring lives. Many of these stories were serialized in women's magazines so there was a lot of redundancy for those who missed previous installments.
The older "Wuthering Heights" film with Olivier although an extraction from the book is an integrated whole that sustains your attention and omits no salient point. The newer film includes most of the text and is therefore unweildy. The world of the old film is true to the gothic ideal (teasingly mysterious yet portentous of evil things to come). The new film is "in your face" realism. Brooding, melancholy Heathcliff becomes an unlikeable abuser of women. "It was a dark and stormy night..." becomes "I knew I should have never taken that ride on the moor and gotten lost because now I have to spend the night with my clearly insane landlord..." When the newer film attmpts a gothic touch it becomes silly.
