The tragic love affair (and its consequences) between the noted theologian Peter Abelard and the brilliant Heloise is artfully brought to the screen in the adaptation of the novel by the same name. The casting and cinematograhy were supurb.
Two versions of this film exist on videotape. The unrated version is by far the best, although EXTREMELY graphic. The “R” rated version toned the explicit material down significantly — but also cut much material which had nothing to do with any “racy” scenes, and really did damage to the plot line.
As an additional “plus”, some of the historical liberties which the author of the novel took (see my review for details) were greatly toned down in the film.
An enjoyable, historical film — but not for everyone. If you can’t handle the explicit material, don’t bother with the edited version. Too much was cut out.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of visiting their graves at Pere la Chaise in Paris and the sight of them lying there side by side is one I’ll never forget. It drives home the reality that they really did exist and that they truly will be together for all eternity. We should all be so lucky!
