Very good made for TV movie
1 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally disagree with what the first reviewer wrote- if you are comparing this film to a box office hit in the 21st century produced by a major mega-movie studio, fine, the comments are justified. But how fair is that seeing as this was made in 1991 as a Turner cable network original movie-- MADE FOR TV? As such, it is a very adequate film. I saw it (and taped it on a VHS cassette) when it first aired. I just revisited the tape tonight, almost 20 years later (and yes, VHS basic home-taped cassettes do last that long if you store them properly). I still feel after all these years that the movie is a very good adaptation of the original ground-breaking 19th century novel and all the book characters are true to form- which is much more than I can say about most movie adaptations of famous written works. The scenery is quite good, the cinematography is actually MUCH better than most TV movies from 1990 and the sets, costumes, locations, etc, quite appropriate to the portrayal of that time period and place. My favorite part of the movie is the playing of the Chopin nocturne as it captures the essence in music of what Kelly's character is feeling in her 'awakening'. I think for its time and audience, it is a very good movie, well worth the view if you can get past the fact that it is not a major studio production's multi-million dollar epic.
