The very first time I ever heard of this story, I was quite too old, to my own admission, to have been oblivious of this book.
It's all about the position of women, farming, having far too many guys around...
If you are in anyway into period dramas, this has been filmed for you!
Mathias Schoenaert is quite a looker and
his character is a true Prince Charming without the bullshit.
The scenery is breathtaking and, as usual in this type of cinematography,
it acts as an actual character because of all of the emotional mess that is delt with
the lanscape puts perspective onto it.
One of the best soundtrack to come my way in a long time...
Thank you Thomas Hardy for such a breathtaking tale.
