Ive seen the Colin Firth film, read the book and also watched this version. The book is captivating, the Colin Firth film is probably the best re-telling available and an absolute classic for those who love period dramas, but this version has its own place. At 2 hours, it skims many plots and only touches on others, yet there's something about it and that leaves the viewer satisfied and feeling good. The piano scores that pop up throughout are fantastic, as are the stunning birdsong dawns and views across the pond. Keira Knightley plays the part of Elizabeth wonderfully well; her varied expressions, girle giggles and stubbornness of character bring the story to life. Yet there's something else too, just little things such as the servant ambling her way through the film singing to herself, the stark setting on the moor in Derbyshire, the vigor of the ball, the stuffiness of the Bennett house..... There's just something that makes this film feel as though you are watching through a looking glass rather than a tv screen.

Very funny, lavish and stunning to the eye. This is well worth 2 hours of anyone's life.

In order to have this movie in High Definition, I've had the HD-DVD format of it for a few years now - but it's an America issue and has the awful US ending. Now at last it arrives on BLU RAY in the UK (May 2010) and it's just as gorgeous a transfer. It uses exactly the same elements that the HD-DVD did - even the same menus - and the extras from the DVD are all intact also (with the US ending tagged on as an Alternate).

The improvement in picture quality is immense over the rather blurred DVD experience. As it opens with a misty dawn and the twitter of birds, we see the young and feisty Elizabeth Bennet (played with a magical touch and staggering assurance by Kiera Knightly) walking with a book. But it's not until she crosses the courtyard of her home that the real quality kicks in - and it's a wow. The picture takes you aback - it wasn't this good in the cinema I can tell you...

It isn't perfect throughout by any means though. Because they were going for authenticity, a lot of the early evening and dark night sequences are shot in candlelit rooms (as they would have lived), so you get fuzziness in the definition... But once you get out into the countryside or inside one of the great halls of stately homes - where proper lighting prevailed - the picture quality is beautiful. There is one famous dream sequence where only Kiera's closed eyes fill the screen - she is dreaming of standing on the cliff edge - the clarity is gobsmacking. You also notice the weave of the clothing, the dirt on the hemlines, the ever so slightly unkempt hair - the attention to detail is great.

I want to begin by saying that the cinematography of this film is absolutely gorgeous - no complaints there at all. However, sadly, that's where the positives end for me. The dumbed-down language used throughout the film was infuriating to listen to, not to mention completely out of character in places. Keira Knightly's portrayal of Elizabeth Bennett was way too giggly and immature, and many characters from the book were either excluded entirely or poorly developed - Lydia, for example, had almost zero screen time leading up to her involvement with Mr. Wickham. Furthermore, Mr. Bennett was supposed to be the proprietor of a small estate with a steady income of around £2000 - there absolutely would not have been chickens and pigs running around in his backyard! In fact, the entire Bennett family were portrayed more as pig farmers than the middle class gentry they were supposed to be. But the absolute worst thing about this film? The horrible Hollywood-style ending.

A few good castings (a better Wickham and Charlotte Lucas than the BBC series and Judy Dench as Lady Catherine) but very fast paced and disjointed, far from the text and so many bits chopped out that the script doesn't always makes sense, as with Elizabeth saying she has heard so many different accounts of Darcy as to puzzle her exceedingly, when at that point in this version she had heard nothing good about him. Darcy is fine for a change and it's still a good watch, but nothing on the Firth/Ehle combo. Keira Knightley plays Elizabeth close to the flippancy and impropriety of Lydia and Kitty at times, and Matthew MacFadyen seems shy and lost and has nothing of Mr. Darcy's usual strength of character.

I believe this is the definitive film of P&P, far better than the BBC production made famous by Mr Darcy emerging clothed but soaking from his lake. Keira Nightly is adorable as Elizabeth is simply adorable, beautiful, quiet, smouldering, the thinker in the family of airhead mother and four sisters. Poor Mr Bennet, long suffering and exasperated by the frothy femininity around him. Darcy also smoulders with contempt for the empty headed in society, trying to guide his friend away from frivolous people, but his love for Jane cannot be stayed. Darcy is above all a realist, seeing people for what they are and is prepared to treat accordingly. I love him, but I also love Elizabeth and would have wished to be such a creature.
