England after World War I is characterized by industrialization and hyper-intellectualism. A setting that D. H. Lawrence deemed suitable for a love story in the 20th century.
Emma Corrin portrays the title character in the adaption of Lady Chatterley’s Lover directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.
When Constance “Connie” Chatterley’s husband, Clifford (Matthew Duckett), returns from the war crippled below the waist, the couple relocates to his estate, Wragby Hall, near the mining community of Tevershall.
Clifford recommends cruelly that Connie find a boyfriend to impregnate her, as he is unable to father children and is reluctant to provide her with the necessary devotion.
Gradually, he drives Connie away and into the arms of Oliver Mellors (Jack O’Connell), the gamekeeper. Connie and Oliver’s love tale is moving, erotic, and romantic. It begins with the body and subsequently incorporates the mind.
The interaction between one’s body and intellect is one of Clermont-core Tonnerre’s preoccupations, taken directly from Lawrence’s work.
Clifford, who is captivated by high society, places intellectualism above the body, so much so that he abuses the local coal workers for profit and uses Connie as his nurse while ignoring her physical needs.
Only after Connie is liberated from her duty as Clifford’s carer is she able to overcome Clifford’s enforced class restrictions and her own mind, and experience the joys that life has to offer.
Long walks in nature, cradling a baby bird, hugging a baby to her bosom, and having lunch with a buddy are among her favorite activities. And erogenous joys with Oliver that will end in love between the mind and the body.
According to Clifford, all of these joys are “nothing.” A house, love, sex, marriage, and friendship, the full package… The purpose of life is to learn to accept the vast emptiness of existence.”
Lady Chatterley’s Lover categorically denies this. As Connie and Oliver’s love story grows, so does Connie’s rejection of Clifford’s exclusive brand of intellectualism.
The devotion between Lady Chatterley and her lover is sexual, romantic, and sympathetic since it transcends class distinctions. Through their enthusiasm, the film becomes both a moving love tale and a plea to appreciate the body and mind equally.
