Lady Chatterley is exactly what is should be: a lush and lascivious romp that would make even the boldest blush. Based on the scandal-inducing novel by DH Lawrence, the movie follows the affair of an aristocratic woman and her estate’s game keeper. Style rains down as an English spring blossoms, and for the love of god, do not watch this one with your parents. — Amy Merrick

Leave it to the French to do a properly jawdropping version of Lady Chatterley. Each scene radiates with tension: the imposing estate versus the game keeper’s cottage, her fine manners versus his coarse gruffness. It doesn’t hurt that the changing of the seasons and the growing of flowers play a leading role; I will scatter petals in a cottage with a handsome man any day.
