What I love in this movie is the atmosphere created by the superb music, the shots of the dry, barren landscapes, and the use of the light and darkness!!! This movie is very dark and the atmophere rather gloomy! It shows a completely different aspect of the novel from the BBC version, and that's why I like this movie so much!!!
I really enjoyed seeing another Jane Eyre: this one seldom smiles (does she even smile once?) , she's so reserved and cold, therefore it's kind hard to really like this one but at the same time, I like her strong will and I think the movie seems to focuse on her desire for independence!! So it's very interesting to see this other Jane Eyre!
I don't want to talk much about the love story. There's too much restreint, I didn't feel the passion between Rochester and Jane Eyre in this version, simply because there were too few scenes between them. Worse, I have the impression that this Rochester is a bit overshadowed by St John Rivers. And it seems to me that the focus of the movie is on Jane Eyre, alone! and this aspect is rather well done!!!
I would say that with this movie, you get the essence of the novel!
