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.

A real life Cathy and Heathcliff!

By Suzie

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Wuthering Heights DVD (U.K. Edition):

Tom Hardy as Heathcliff and Charlotte Riley as Cathy had so much chemistry! They are great actors BUT this is when they met and fell in love! Tom and Charlotte are married in real life No wonder you felt their love! A real life Cathy and Heathcliff. Another interesting observation is how Hardy played the aging Heathcliff with no makeup just his voice and acting. GREAT FILM!
