Women In Love
Sisters Ursula and Gudrun, their boyfriends Gerald, Birkin
Heady, philosophical, and erotic for its time. The private wrestling match between Gerald and Birkin in the state room of a giant mansion is one of the most memorable scenes from the novel. How else could men show their love for each other back then? A great movie production from the 70s captured the moment very well.
Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen sat one morning in the window-bay of their father's house in Beldover, working and talking.
"You can't have two kinds of love. Why should you!"

"You can't have it, because it's false, impossible," she said.
"I don't believe that," he answered.
