I have known with the Wuthering Heights story ever since I was a little kid, and always liked the book very much.
However, I watched the other versions of this story, but must admit that I was a little dissappointed in them. I cannot put my finger on it, but no film could sense the emotions that you feel throughout the book.

How different it is with this adaption!
When they showed it in my country last weekend, I programmed it, believing it was one of the older versions. When I started to watch it, I was instantly swept away. The characters play their role superbly, I didn't realise anymore that I was watching a film!
Breathtaking, mindsweeping, magnificent. I cried. (and that doens't often happen.)
Tom Hardy was the ideal person for Heathcliff - and I like the fact that he is so 'human'. I mean, I'm glad that he is not the typical Hollywood Hottie... Not that he isn't handsome (he really really is :)), but I feel that with him his beauty goes deeper than apperance alone.

Since it was in 2 parts, I only have the first.I have watched it the same night twice again and dreamt of it later on. I still cannot get it out of my mind: this film takes you back to 1815, in a dream that is hard to wake up from.

I have to wait till saturday for part 2, but too late: couldn't restrain myself and bought it the day after.
Just had to have it. But it! You won't regret it.

This movie is just plain sick. It is way to long for what it is. Heathcliff is a mentally sick thinking person. Cathy is as crazy as he is. They deserve each other. If I didn't pay for this movie I would have turned it off. As it stands I will give it away. Not my idea of entertainment.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Wuthering Heights DVD:

I am only twenty one and I have fallen in love with this story! We never had the privilege of reading it in high school, and I have recently began to conquer a reading list of classic literature on my free time. The book speaks volumes and I could not ask for the movie to be any better. It beautifully takes an already perfectly descriptive story and brings the characters even closer to your heart. I personally get disappointed when a book or movie does not bring a tear to my eye. Wuthering Heights book and movie did so many times. It will forever be a favorite of mine...thank you for this masterpiece!

Truly, Heathcliffe and Cathy forever!

By CathyToo

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Wuthering Heights DVD:

This is my all-time fave story! When I saw this production it took my breath away and drew this tale of truer than true love straight into my heart forever! I have seen several productions, read the book... but, this portrayal, (and the actors that portrayed Heathcliffe and Cathy),in my opinion, were virtually channeling the two star-crossed lovers and friends that I have always imagined they were. Tremendous performance!

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Wuthering Heights DVD:

This work absolutely does the novel a great service! Emily Brontë's tormented lovers are beautifully portrayed and her setting is simply breathtaking. Without a doubt, this Masterpiece Classic stole my heart as quickly as the novel itself.
