Rich, titled and beautiful, young Lady Chatterley (Sylvia Kristel) is increasingly restless and frustrated by her passionless marriage to Sir Clifford (Shane Briant). Increasingly attracted to the handsome Mellors (Nicholas Clay), her husband's gamekeeper, she is soon seeking physical and emotional satisfaction in a passionate affair, oblivious to the social scandal they are creating. Based on one of the most famous and scandalous books ever written, D.H. Lawrence's classic love story was banned for over 30 years when first published. Here, the controversial literary classic is beautifully realised as a voluptuous cinema experience from director Just Jaeckin, who also directed Kristel in Emmanuelle.
