There are faults in all my favourite versions: 1950, 1983, 1996, 1997, and 2006. Charlotte was great but the rest of the cast less so for their roles, and they missed crucial bits. In '50 they edited information and scenes. '83 was stretched to make as many episodes as they could. '97 couldn't fit everything in, but they did well in the time. 2006 was really good but I thought that they were too friendly: less dramatic tension. But I still love them.
This movie was what introduced me to the book. I thought at first it was a horror story. Anna Paquin is excellent as the young Jane, and the contrast with the subdued & restrained 18 year old Jane as played by Charlotte is striking. Don't know if it's really supposed to be like that. Mia Wasikowska's Jane feels even more subdued. I wonder if Ruth's 2006 version is a more correct representation. And after having seen other versions, I think the most apt version or portrayal of Mr. Rochester is probably Toby in 2006 BBC production-the energy, athleticism as described in the book and his informality towards Jane was represented really well.

es tan fuerte e intensa esta escena que sale fuego en todo momento. Divinos.
worst Rochester ever
You can't call William Hurt a passionate Rochester.His portrayal of the role lacks the sparkle that is so essential for this part.

Toothbrush : Why you hate W.Hurt ?? He is excelent actor..I love this version . ..
God, she was such a wonderful Jane Eyre. And William Hurt as Mr Rochester, soooo intense!
I miss Toby's shirt.......that's all I have to say ;)
@annachan1: edmund? his name is edward, and he's supposed to be around as twice as old as her...
i can't shake it! i feel like this jane is too young and this edmund is too old..argh..

i think tht he loved her even before she saved him, he just never showed it. :)
It's hard to say exactly why - it's just something I've always felt. Maybe because Charlotte actually looks closer to 18 than Zelah (who was really 29 when the 1983 version was made). Now, since I made that comment several months ago about preferring C. to Z., Z. has really grown on me since I've watched the 1983 version countless times. I do like her alot. Anyway, I can hardly stand to watch this version anymore after seeing the 1983 one, so I guess it doesn't matter if I like C. better. ; )
I think it depends on what meaning one put into the words "quiet" and "shy". Jane might have been quiet and shy up to some point in time, but I come to think of a passage in Ch XVI where Jane tells us, the Readers: "I knew the pleasure of vexing and soothing him by turns; it was one I chiefly delighted in, and a sure instinct always prevented me from going too far; beyond the verge of provocation I never ventured; on the extreme brink I liked well to try my skill."
As far as I'm concerned, the 1973 version is the best. According to the great "Bronteana" site, it is "perfection"!
Oh, he is just awful, awful, awful!!! What casting person actually thought he would make even a half-way believable Rochester?? I like this Jane alot, though. Too bad she wasn't around yet to be Jane in the Timothy Dalton verson...they would have been perfect together. Timothy Dalton IS Rochester to me. If those two had been Jane & Mr. R., we would have the perfect, definitive Jane Eyre, IMO.
I agree. :>

The one with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens is like, 100 times better. There's no chemistry between these two.
i like this version's jane, not terribly crazy about this rochester but it's more important to me given a choice, to have a better jane than a better rochester. if they ever come out with a great jane and a great rochester, let me know. if we can cut and paste our favourite jane and favourite rochester, etc, we can make our own youtube "jane eyre". oh, and i like this version's music -- more grand and epic. here's my ultimate preference: charlotte gainsbourg - jane. orson welles - rochester

i really thought this version was more like what i saw in my head when i read it. probably because i read it after i saw the movie. but liked the offish way jane and mr r acted. its not true to the book like others, but i like it.
people dont get me wrong charlotte is pretty good as jane but she doesnt have that spark that ruth wilson does... which is what jane has also neways ruth and tiby are better coupled then charlotte and william they look like their in love (even if they sometimes kiss weird)

My favorite version of Jane Eyre. I believe Charlotte Gainsbourg is definitely the best Jane.
Darren Binns
Charlotte Gainsbourg was the very best Jane Eyre ever, but Rochester here is all wrong, Timothy Dalton and Charlotte would've been brilliant together.
Escena de contenida e intensa pasión. El frio del que habla Jane es fuego puro entre los dos. Esta escena es perfecta!!!
