(Pascale Ferran, 2006). Drawing on the most scandalous summer romance in English literature, Pascale Ferran's Lady Chatterley is itself a sort of vacationa leisurely immersion in a verdant, sensuous world that's largely free of the sexual pontifications intrinsic to D.H. Lawrences novel. Nearly three hours long, Lady Chatterley passes as swiftly as the summer shower that occasions the novel's most celebrated scene. This is not so much a love storyeven less a story about lovethan it is a movie of passionate loveliness.
