Description du produit
BBC drama updating the story of 'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Bronte. On isolated Sparkhouse farm, feisty Carol Bolton (Sarah Smart) lives with her drunken father and shares a destructively intense passion with her childhood love Andrew Lawton (Joseph McFadden). But in the surroundings of the bleak, expansive moors, the dark secrets and jealousies at the heart of their relationship threatens to destroy everything they hold dear.
Starring Sarah Smart (At Home with the Braithwaites), Joseph McFadden (The Crow Road, Small Faces), Alun Armstrong and Celia Imrie, Sparkhouse is a love story that works heartfelt romance with humour and pain into a tale as powerful and turbulent as a modern-day Wuthering Heights. Carol and Andrew have been in love since school. When Andrew prepares to go to university, his parents are relieved that he will be out of the clutches of reckless, volatile Carol, whose world is slowly beginning to fall apart. The secrets that have been buried among the chaos of her family home at Sparkhouse farm are working their way into the open.

Mon seul regret: la fin trop abrupte, que j'ai trouvée bâclée.
Pour information, le dvd est en anglais, sous-titré anglais.

The film itself was a good one. I really enjoyed the story. I saw SOME similarities to Bronte's Wuthering Heights. However, overall, I felt this story was a much different story with other elements not found in Wuthering Heights. I did not care for the abrupt ending AT ALL!
Wuthering heights did not end once Catherine died. Heathcliffe lived and was haunted by her until his death. After Andrew's death, the movie just ends with Carol leaving with her husband and daughter. I wanted more. The story was by no means over, even though the film ended. I recommend that others who haven't seen the film to view it. It's definitely worth watching and even owning. Just be prepared to be let down by the unfinished ending. Those of us who happen to know the original story and previous films, I suppose, can simply use our imaginations concerning what should be. However, those who are not familiar with the original(s) are being cheated for sure!
Happily, Richard Armitage plays John, the only really good man in the whole situation, and in my mind, John and Carol are the *real* love story. Although the ending isn't an obviously happy one, at least it ends on a hopeful note, leaving the door open for Carol to finally be able to build a healthy life for herself.
Excellent acting from all involved. If you like Wuthering Heights, you'll probably find this movie an interesting twist on the theme. If you don't like Wuthering Heights, well, at least you got to watch a movie with Richard Armitage in it. :-D
The novel Wuthering Heights is a real downer of a read, parts of it are gripping but the rest is wilderness and madness, like the moors itself. Plus, necrophilia and inter-generational inbreeding are not very romantic when you come right down to it. That being said, this rework of Bronte's story is set in the present with some post-modern sex changes. Heathcliff's character is embodied in Carol (Sarah Smart), Cathy becomes Andrew (Joe McFaddlen) and John Standring (Richard Armitage) is an amalgam of the doomed siblings, Isabella and Edgar Hareton. The Heathcliff character works really well as a female role but Cathy's repression and hysteria don't translate as well for a male part. For all you 3S BBC Robin Hood fans, there is a special treat, Holly Grainger (the actress who plays Meg) as a teenager!
And yes, RA is good in it, although his body language and appearance are quite different than the heroic Mr. Thornton North & South or the sadistic Sir Guy Robin Hood: Seasons 1-2. This was made in 2002 (RA is a beardless brunette) and since that time he has matured quite nicely in my opinion!! Beware, this searing tragedy has gripping performances all the way round and it is almost impossible to quit watching it so plan to allot three hours before you start.
Also, for those of you who have not yet purchased a regionless DVD player, prices have come down considerably and believe me--it's more than worth it. There are too many wonderful things out there to see that aren't available in a region 1 version. You'll be glad you did, honest!
