Wuthering Heights (2011)

Directed by: Andrea Arnold
Country: UK

Summary: A poor boy of unknown origins is taken in by the Earnshaw family where he develops an intense relationship with his young foster sister.
Review: I really appreciate Andrea Arnold’s filmmaking. “Red Road” and “Fish Tank” are movies that remained in my mind due to its quality. This time she was inspired by Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” and created a loose adaptation of it. The first half of the movie was a delight. I was grabbed by the story details and by the amazing cinematography. The second half was absolutely different. The dialogues were very limited and the movie started to drag, softening my enthusiasm. “Wuthering Heights” certainly is not among Arnold’s best works, but still can attract followers of independent movies.
Relevant awards: Cinematography (Venice).
