4.0 out of 5 stars excellent adaptation, 28 April 2006
This review is from: Sense And Sensibility (BBC) [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
By far the best adaptation of this novel with more care taken about character casting and period feeling than the self indulgent Thompson film. Beautifully filmed in Somerset and Dorset. This adaptation probably will not appeal to those who are unable to cope with good English.

Indeed! Absolutely. Film makers tend to use big authors, grand music, which they should be expected to serve. Just serve. One only example in "historic" productions folly is the kiss in the mouth in public, never there before the sexual revolution in the sixties, introduced by Hollywood, forcibly adopted afterwards with very bad taste even by royal families reduced to a kind of descending movie star role, and the consequence of all this misleadings is youngsters believe old characters to be just as they themselves are nowadays. The right to love, the right to marry for love did not exist yet in Austen times, and all her work is very important in defending them as a cause, for her own personal motives.
