The best version of Wuthering Heights I have ever seenBy a customer from Newcastle , 16 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]A worthy adaptation of Emily Bronte's classic novel of the same title about love and obsession.
The casting is superb. Ralph fiennes plays the complex and enigmatic Heathcliff, whilst Juliette Binoche plays the loving tormentor Cathy.
I felt it was the music however composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto that truly captures the bleak, dank atmosphere of the Yorkshire Moors and places this version higher than other adaptations.
All in all a must see romance/ melodrama for any serious film lover.

Dark, brooding and BronteBy JoG (65 reviews) from Bradford , 24 Feb 2009Enjoyed this. Initially didnt see how Ralph Fiennes would make a good Heathcliffe. He did a good accent and was very dark and brooding though. Juliette's accent was a little here and there, but thought she was also good in her role. All in all enjoyed the film very much from a real Yorkshire lass.
Seen it at lastBy a customer from Market Rasen , 02 Feb 2009I had never seen a film of this book and wondered what I was missing. So I set out with this modern version. Very beautiful to look at but full of really miserable people.
I had never explored the fateful story of Heathcliffe and Kathy before and realise the story must have come from someone almost clinically depressed.!!
It is a sad and moving story and well worth seeing in this modern cversion.
Dire castingBy a customer from Cornwall, England , 19 Jan 2009Dire casting of JB as Catherine Earnshaw really lets this one down.
Wuthering Heights (1992)By a customer from Norwich , 13 Jan 2009Having only seen this version once, I am awestruck at how much passion and power I have felt whilst watching it. The embittered love, tempered with the rage that entwined his life with Cathy, and thereafter, is a small part of how superbly the colossal Heathcliff is carried by the ever-talented Mr. Fiennes. This is truly a masterpiece, and a credit to the late Ms. Brontës literary talent.
Nice try, but...By a customer from York , 31 Dec 2008A brave attempt to film an unfilmable novel - ALL of it, not just the events culminating in Cathy's death. Sadly the film is hampered by the ridiculous casting of Juliette Binoche, whose French accent is irritating in the extreme, and a clunky script. Ralph Fiennes takes the acting honours in his first film role, but it could have been so much better with a different writer and a different Cathy. Oh, and the music is very effective.
