Excellent alternative version – with some reservations
OK I’ll start off with what I definitely found disturbing about this film and did not like. As others have mentioned there is some worrying animal cruelty in this film – no I don’t mean the trapped hare or the killing of rabbits – I can easily stomach this. What did worry me is the hanging of the small dogs from fence posts by their collars which clearly left the dogs in a distressed state – I can’t believe this was generated by special effects so can only assume that some dogs were left dangling in this way for the purpose of producing this film – not acceptable in my book.
That aside I actually enjoyed this film and would have given it 8 out 10 had it not been for the unnecessary cruelty. I have yet to see ‘Red Road’ so this was my first experience of an Andrea Arnold film. What struck me is how little dialogue there was – instead we are treated to the Yorkshire moors in all their bleakness. I think this has been done to great effect – the wind noise as the camera is bouncing along the moorland is surprisingly effective at immersing the viewer in the wild Yorkshire landscape.
The first half of the film – where Heathcliff and Cathy are still children, has some very powerful moments. Unfortunately I found the grown up versions less convincing, although it is my opinion that Arnold deliberately chose actors that did look somewhat different to their younger versions; there are many flashbacks in the second half of the film and these are made more prominent by featuring the different actors.
Other reviewers have pointed out how dark this film is and that there are no likable characters. Well surprise surprise it’s an incredibly bleak book and it’s a relief that this has been retained here. What is unfortunate is that the whole of the second part of the book featuring Cathy’s daughter Catherine has been completely omitted, but at the slow pace of this film it would have required at least another 2 hours to cover this. Also I might suggest that Isabella was actually quite likable!
Would I recommend anyone to see this? Not to an animal lover for sure – it’s unfortunate that these scenes are included and I’m slightly surprised that this is permitted in filming. But for the wonderful experience of being immersed in the wildness of the moors, definitely.
A disgrace to Emily Bronte’s masterpiece!
I was absolutely appalled and annoyed at this adaptation of Wuthering Heights. I was completely disgusted at how much they changed the story, basically adapting it in their own politically correct, ludicrous, modernised style which is not what this timeless classic was about!! In a nutshell, the whole thing was just an absolute joke and with much disapproval and disgust, stopped watching before they even got to the adult era where Heathcliff & Cathy are adults, although have heard about just how awful the rest of it was.
Well, where do I begin? Firstly, I was disgusted by the bloody scenes of Cathy & Heathcliff as children being all sexual together, which of course never happened in the story, but also, what was the need for this?! It was downright unnecessary and not what Bronte’s work consisted of at all. Secondly, the utter lack of dialogue was just incredibly irritating, not to mention the shaky camera and slow pace, as how can anyone engage in a film that has such little dialogue, slow pace and a shaky camera? Another thing that irritated me like mad was Heathcliff being black; heathcliff is not supposed to be black. He is described as dark but not black, dark does not mean black. Plus, why on earth would they have had black characters like this in this period timeline? Wuthering Heights was NEVER about racism at all, yet they made Heathcliff suddenly experience it, being called the N word, and neither was racism a burning issue in 18th Century Yorkshire; they were just making it into their own politically correct, woke, modernised project, ruining and undermining the whole traditional, classic theme of the original story, including with the constant cursing, something that was very rare, if existent at all, in the 18th Century, and most certainly never in the book.
I also couldn’t bear the acting. Not that there was much being said, but child Cathy was incredibly annoying, with her ridiculous acting, which is only typical of child acting I guess though. But still she was annoying.
They just completely butchered a much beloved classic, turning it into their own ridiculous, pathetic, politically correct, stupid version, which was an absolute joke, more like a spoof of Wuthering Heights than an actual film adaptation. Emily Bronte would surely be turning in her grave.
