Women in Love (1969)

Women in Love, the adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's novel, is the first Ken Russell's film I've seen. It follows the loves and lives of two sisters and two men in a mining town at the beginning of the 20th century. They are played by Glenda Jackson, Jennie Linden, Alan Bates and Oliver Reed.

Alan Bates and the fig

This is a very special film, striking and highly sensual.

It has many unforgettable scenes. One of them is Alan Bates at a picnic describing how to eat a fig. Another, famous one is the nude wrestling of two friends. Glenda Jackson's dancing in front of the bulls is brilliant !!
