Quotes

Jane Eyre: I was myself still, without obvious change. Yet where was the Jane Eyre of yesterday? Where were her hopes? Where were her prospects? My hopes were all dead: struck with a subtle doom as in one night fell on all the first-born of Egypt. I looked on my cherished wishes: they lay still, stark corpses that could never revive. I looked at my love: it shivered in my heart like a suffering child in a cold cradle.

Without doubt the best ever adaptation of Jane Eyre.
15 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this mini series back in 1973 when it was broadcast on the BBC and thought it was wonderful. I immediately read the book and couldn't believe how true to the book the adaptation was. Also what I loved about it was it wasn't a glitzy Hollywood version, it completely captured the atmosphere of the book. All the cast gave brilliant performances. Sorcha Cusack was a perfect Jane but Michael Jayston's performance was just astounding. He managed to portray all the complexities of the character with a touch of dry wit, and the chemistry between Rochester and Jane is just amazing. I'm afraid the 1983 Dalton version just doesn't do anything for me. Dalton is an excellent actor but once you've read the book he doesn't really fit the part the way Michael Jayston does. It is fantastic that the powers that be have come to their senses and decided to re-release it after all these years. It is an exceptional adaptation. Don't miss it!
