Quotes

Jane Eyre: Why do you confide in me like this? What are you and she to me? Do you think because I am poor and plain I have no feelings? I promise you... if God had gifted me with wealth and beauty, I should make it as hard for you to leave me now, as it is for me to leave you. But He did not. Yet my spirit can address yours, as if both had passed through the grave and stood before Him equal.
Edward Rochester: Jane.
Jane Eyre: Let me go, sir.
Edward Rochester: I love you. I love you!
Jane Eyre: Please, don't make me foolish.
Edward Rochester: Foolish? I need you! What is Blanche ...

Best Version
20 June 2001 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

This is the best version of the classic novel. one of my favorites. The music is superb from John Williams. A must for soundtrack lovers. Very very very very very very popular in China in the early 80's. A good Chinese dubbed version as well.
