I saw this version few days ago. First part was very good, especially Heathcliff s a Cathie's childhood, it was really nice. All actors were playing very well. I liked the most Isabella, and Catherine Linton, she was great. I was a little bit disappointed by Heathcliff,I think his sadness and cruelty was not expressed enough, I mean by his facial expression. And I think this actor looked too old for that role. Cathy was also played very good, but she was supposed to be prettier than Isabella, but wasn't. If Icompare Cathy and Catherine Linton, I think, Catherine Linton was more powerful, wild in this movie, than her mother, which is supposed to be opposite. Second part, after Cathy's dead, was quite boring, and also scenes when Cathy is dying didn't move me like when I saw the version with Ralph Fiennes. And as in every movie version, also in this one,Ellen was played by older woman, and in the book she is supposed to be in Hindlie's age, so she should be 8 years older then Cathy and Heathcliff. But its just detail, not important. If I compare, the version with Ralph was not so accurate, but it expressed all important components of the book, all passion, cruelty,hate and love, and remains still my favorite one. BBC version is much more accurate and detailed than any other, very good for people who didn't read book, and its very interesting to see for every fan of Wuthering Heights.
