Consensus: Tasteful, poetic, yet sexually forthright, Lady Chatterley skillfully translates its source novel's high-art erotica onto the big screen.

Excellent performances by everyone involved help you overlook the incongruity of French-speaking actors in traditional English settings.

A picture about passion that invites none, a picture far easier to admire than to adore.

I was lulled by the gentleness of the film, and struck by how closely Ferran observes her characters, as well as how modern and subtle her insights are.

Director Pascale Ferran is true to the spirit of the book and gives us an eyeful, of both the glorious countryside and the lovers' physiques.

The relationship ...becomes more intriguing somewhere in the movie's third hour, but getting to that point is too much of a chore.

The beautiful scenery complements the intimate scenes even as the story becomes something we've all seen and read in so many books and films. Yet, its candid conversations about sexuality are what places Lawrence's protagonist in a class by herself.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

Like a sprawling afternoon spent reading Lawrence, Ferran's film is a welcome and often enthralling escape -- for Connie, and for us.

Alas...the lady comes across here as a simple-minded girl instead of an achingly vulnerable woman of possibilities.
