whuthering height影评

This movie is adopted by the book which has the same name—Wuthering Height. At the beginning of entering university, I had read the book. To begin with, I just considered it as a assignment that a English major student must finish. However, when I was finishing the book, I unexpectedly was unwilling to come to the end. I was deeply caught into the whirlpool of love and hatred between Heathcliff and cathy, meanwhileI also felt a bit confused about their love and hatred. I became unable to understand what is love on earth. Later, I watched 2009 version of the movie and appreciated the story again. I seemed to understand something.

The story begun with a mistake that made by Lockwood, a temporary resident. He is seeking shelter from the blizzard and he staggers through the door of Wuthering Heights, finding the atmosphere inside is just as cold as ice. The master of the house, Heathcliff, provides a bed reluctantly and it seems like that he feels ill at ease with his visitor’s coming. There's a sad tale behind his indifference, one which the elderly housekeeper Nelly Dean is happy to share.

Forty years ago, Wuthering Heights was filled with light, warmth and happiness. Mr.Earnshaw, a congenial gentleman farmer, lives happily with his boisterous children Cathy and Hindley. However, being a kind and generous fellow, he can't help rescuing a poor starving wretch off of the streets of Liverpool, a gypsy child named Heathcliff. In time Heathcliff

becomes one of the family, loved by all people except Hindley,the son of Mr.Earnshaw . Cathy is an especially good childhood friend, spending many a happy day playing on the moor with Heath Cliff. Unfortunately Mr.Earnshaw dies suddenly; Hindley is able to express his enmity with damning cruelty. In order to air his grievance, he reduced Heath Cliff to a servant.

Later, Catherine is forced to marry Edgar. Heath Cliff’s heart is broken, so he leaves Wuthering Heights. After three years, he comes back to Wuthering Heights with wealth. Catherine has married Edgar, but not happiness. Heath Cliff begins to revenge crazily. He takes away Hindley’s belongings by gambling. Then, Hindley gets drunk and die, his son Hareton became slaves. Heathcliff also marries Edgar's sister Isabella deliberately and persecute her in all the ways. Catherine is miserable inside and then dies of dystocia. Ten years later, Heath Cliff makes Edgar’ daughter Catherine marry to his dying son Linton. Edgar and small Linton dies, Heathcliff owes E dgar’s property finally. Heath cliffrevenged successfully, but he couldn’t stop missing the dead Catherine, and then he dies. Small Catherine and Hareton inherit all the property and they finally fall in love with each other.

To be honest, I can’t speak out one myfavorite character since every character has been filled with love with hatred. However, every character can linger on my mind lasting for a long time.Having seen the book and

the movie,a man’s own character shape his fortune, which is I felt most of all.

Heathcliff is one character who made me feel most complicated.Mr. Earnshaw treats Heathcliff even nicer than his own son, HindleyEarnshaw. After Mr. Earnshawpassed away, Heathcliff couldn't find his place in the Wuthering Height. When Heathcliff was abused by Hindley and betrayed by Catherine, his 自尊has far more than his gratitude to Mr. Earnshaw. He revenged Hindley and Catherine, even their heirs. although he is the avenger who dominate the whole story by using his vengeful machinations, he is also the most pitiful guy in Wuthering Heights; he doesn’t know what is love and don’t know how to love. Heath Cliff has lived with the Earnshaws for more than 10 years, but there is no attachment between him and the whole family except Catherine. However, even Catherine was died because of Heathc liff’s torture. When he is torturing others, he is also giving himself a suffering.

When I was watching the movie, Imade many hypotheses: if Cathy wasn’t selfish and vain; if Heathcliff didn’t impulse to decide to leave Cathy without hearing out her word; if Cathy didn’t give up their relationship and marry Edgar; if Heathcliff didn’t bother their marriage after two years…the whole story will become different if one of that come to true. In our life, there is no script and so-called if.A man’s own character shape his fortune.The same stubbornness of Heathcliff and

Cathy leaded to their romantic tragedy.
