Charlotte Brontë‘s Jane Eyre is so well written, so full of life.
It describes the inner of Jane as almost no writer can describe the soul of a character, as of a real human being. Charlotte could psychologically reach behind the cloak of men and women as she shows through her main characters. She also knew people’s true desires and inner struggles. She gives her descriptions true, witty yet right to the heart. She shows how destiny and free will works through sharp conversations and stark events.
Mr. Rochester and Jane Eyre
I envy her writing, for it is so philosophical and straight to the point yet decorated with enough description. You know exactly what to feel for every character but still you have to read every sentence carefully since they are so bountiful. Every scene has a lesson of its own. The book, as the movie, taught me, inspired me and connected me to the story, to Jane and to Edward. How wonderful of a story, how amazing the writer. I wish I could have shared a cup of tea with Charlotte. See how obliviously sharp she must have spoken and how kind she must have been. Critical, yet loving I’m sure. Perhaps we will sometime ;).

Superb casting, splendid cinematography, amazing costume design, magnificent storyline and settings… this film is pure art!
I absolutely agree! Especially the indoor cinematography was innovatory and beautiful. The actors are a piece of respectful enlightenment to the book, they are perfect. I would love to make a costume like Jane’s someday!
