A pleasure watching
25 May 2001 | by (West Valley) – See all my reviews

I thought this little obscure adaptation was one of the better versions of the Bronte novel to ever be put on film. I would say that George C. Scott's Rochester ties with the best interpretations of the character with the likes of Mr.Orson Wells and Ciaran Hinds. The musical score (one of the earliest works of John Williams) was a haunting little melody that fit the film perfectly and I found the laughing and the "Grace Poole" parts more mysterious, even slightly more frightening. This version also has Blanche Ingram portrayed as Charlotte Bronte' had visioned, a tall brunette of a slightly older age and not rediculously imitated by a supermodel as in some other adaptations. Ms. York did a remarkable job as Jane Eyre, however, I believe the best Jane Eyre performance goes to Samantha Morton in the BBC 1997 version. However, Susanna York and George C. Scott's scenes have the most chemistry and tenderness in them. I thought this little version (even with Jane's 70's hair-do)was great and after a long search I finally found it on video. 8 out of 10.
