Women in Love Summary
The hunt is on to find the murderer of a wealthy glamorous heiress who is found dead in her London townhouse. Based on the short story by Agatha Christie. The social and class divisions in early 20th century England through the intersection of three families - the wealthy Wilcoxes, the gentle and idealistic Schlegels and the lower-middle class Basts.
Christmas Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. The Defoes, a family of female divorce lawyers, are forced to face their past following the return of their estranged father after a 30 year absence. Powerful adaptation of DH Lawrence's novel about the lives of two sisters, Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen, as they struggle with their own desires and passions.
How proud am I, how thrilled and moved and excited. The latter remains one of my favourite authors. Although it might be said that it would be hard to equal the Russell version, William Ivory delivers a sterling script and Miranda Bowen's direction never falters. It is, in short, as good as the original and it steers clear of ever mimicking or mocking it.
Russell's work viewed the sisters Gudrun and Ursula from a male perspective. Lawrence had enough feminine wiles and qualities to truly understand his female characters and in Bowen's version this is obvious. Unlike Glenda Jackson's powerhouse and almost butch Gudrun, Rosamund Pike delivers a cunning vixen, a very feminine near nymphomaniac artist and Rachael Stirling is a stronger, more present, less demure Ursula than Jenny Linden.
The film's sequences differ from Russell's work and where essential scenes have to be repeated, they offer an entirely different insight into both character and situation.
For instance here the famous nude wrestling scene between Rupert Birkin and Gerald Crich features much later, is less erotic, not in front of a winter fire but on the beach in bright sunshine and therefore is more plausible and motivated. By now the two friends have strained their relationship to such an extent that they have to confront each other. Incidentally,this version doesn't shy away from Rupert's suppressed gay tendencies. There is no sign of the chilling Alpine snow scenes where the two couples 'split'.
Here we have the scorching South African desert with heat so visible it has to affect and effect the characters.

And gone is the final discussion between Rupert and Ursula where he declares: "Having you, I can live all my life without anybody else, any other sheer intimacy. But to make it complete, really happy, I wanted eternal union with a man too: another kind of love," With her reply:"I don't believe it. It's an obstinacy, a theory, a perversity. The film's end is almost abrupt and unexpected and has great impact.
If so, the art director, set designers and dressers etc should be doubly congratulated for depicting the English Midlands during the early s. The reason for my pride and excitement, however, is how the local South African actors not only hold their own, but well-nigh outshine their British colleagues in some scenes more about this later.
Women in Love
Tinarie Van Wyk-Loots creates a Samantha who is far more than the sum-total of her beautiful face and exquisite boobs; she is not merely whore but the full-blooded woman in body and mind both Brangwen sisters ache to be. As the somewhat ambiguous and mysterious Wolfgang Loerke portrayed by Vladek Sheybal in as a vicious, scheming queer Grant Swanby once again shows why he is one of my favourite actors.
His Loerke is less obvious, less blatant - a subtle seduction of Gudrun's senses and sensibilities. And then there is Susan Danford who in 90 seconds looks like a young Geraldine Chaplin if not for her voice I wouldn't have recognised her but demolishes Gudrun as Robert's wife surrounded by their four or five children.
It's not scene stealing. It is inevitable and essential. And leaves an indelible memory. All these actors are of course thoroughbreds on stage.
