This is British filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s third film which is an adaptation of the Emily Bronte classic 1847 novel. Arnold’s screen play, co-written with Olivia Hetreed and winner of the best cinematography award at the Venice Film Festival 2011, is a “brilliant, visceral” version in which director Andrea Arnold and cinematographer Robbie Ryan strip the story ruthlessly down to its bare essentials: pain, anger and love”. (Peter Bradshaw The Guardian 2011)

In English

Wuthering Heights is beautiful. Though grimy, caked with mud, muck and blood, it’s brilliant in its decay. And through close-ups of hair, fur, flesh and feathers, Arnolds gives her film a texture so rich you can almost run your fingers through it.
— Kristy Puchko, Pajiba

The movie [Wuthering Heights] confirms Ms. Arnold to be one of the 21st century’s most essential filmmakers.
— Filmmaker Magazine
Andrea Arnold’s 2011 adaptation of Wuthering Heights points the way for more challenging and political exploration of the female canon’s classic authors, revitalizing them by blowing the cobwebs from safe romantic cliché.
