CGiii Comment

Glenda Jackson won the Oscar for her portrayal of Gudrun Brangwen - a complex woman indeed.

This is possibly Russell's best film - although diehard fans many would argue the case.

There is, of course, the legendary wrestling scene between Reed and Bates...male frontal nudity in cinema was (almost) unheard of when this was made - daring indeed - of Mr Russell and his actors.

Russell pushes the homoerotica so far into your face that you'll be plucking pubic hair from between your teeth.

Genuinely outstanding.

The(ir) Blurb...

The battle of the sexes and relationships among the elite of Britian's industrial Midlands in the 1920s. Gerald Crich and Rupert Berkin are best friends who fall in love with a pair of sisters Gudrun, a sculptress and Ursula Brangwen, a schoolteacher. Rupert marries Ursula, Gerald begins a love affair with Gudrun, and the foursome embarks upon a Swiss honeymoon. But the relationships take markedly different directions, as Russell explores the nature of commitment and love. Rupert and Ursula learn to give themselves to each other; the more withdrawn Gerald cannot, finally, connect with the demanding and challenging Gudrun.
