I do not recommend this DVD for any age. It is not good for children to watch. The story was very weak. The characters in the story are shallow. There was no purpose for the movie. There was a great deal of nudity not related to an actual story. It was more like pornography. All the characters had loose morals. Sex with anyone or everyone just because you felt like it.

Outstanding movie. Alan Bates, and Glenda Jackson are wonderful.

Ken Russel caused quite a stir with the censors in 1969 when he adapted D. H. Lawrence’s novel about the power and politics of sex with most of its nudity and passions intact. Despite Russel’s signature chop-shop editing style and some wordy passages which sound as if they were read directly from the source material, this is a very watchable ensemble piece which softens its heady mix of sexual politics and social critique with some genuinely erotic passages—most notably a nude wrestling match between Bates and Reed in front of a roaring fire. Russel also throws in some clever touches, comparing the foursome’s intellectual dalliances with fornication and morality to the open carnality of the lower classes. Furthermore, a homoerotic bond between the two men suggests Rupert may need Gerald more than he is willing to admit (that “almost-kiss” is enough to take your breath away), a need highlighted by the aforementioned fireside fight complete with bear skin rug. And throughout the film images of women—in paintings, sculpture, and metaphorical fruit (I’ll never look at a fig the same way again)—appear to mock the male protagonists who unwillingly follow the women wherever they lead them. Indeed, when Jackson’s character manages to scare off a herd of bulls with a simple dance you can almost hear Lawrence laughing.

The D.H. Lawrence masterpiece "Women In Love" is given a brilliant screen adaptation in this 1969 film. This is Ken Russell's best film and earned a best actress oscar for the great Glenda Jackson. Oliver Reed and Alan Bates do some of their best work as well in a film that captures the essence of the novel. There are many memorable sequences in this beautifully shot film which, like the novel, can be enjoyed again and again.

a plot is a wonderful thing. this movie did not have one. I do not understand how a scene of 2 grown men wrestling naked has any relation to "women in love". I also did not understand how a couple drowning in some shallow water has any relation to the title. this movie was a mess.
