Quotes

Edward Rochester: A true Janian reply! Good angels be my guard! She comes from the other world: from the abode of people who are dead and tells me so here, alone. If I dared, I'd touch you to see if you were substance or shadow. Truant! Truant! Absent from me a whole month- and forgetting me quite, I'll be sworn!

Without doubt the best ever adaptation of Jane Eyre.
15 May 2006 | by 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!
