Customer Review

on August 30, 2007
People will inevitably compare this with the 1995 BBC adaptation and i was unwilling to watch this for the first year of its release because i was sure the 1995 version could never be equaled. I love both versions and would not pick one above the other but they each bring something different for the viewer. I think Colin Firth did a wonderful job portraying Mr Darcy but Mathew Macfadyen is definitely well cast and brings more of a vulnerability to the character which reminds me of Pamela Aidens take on Darcy in her spin-off books. I love Keira Knightley as Lizzy; her acting is top notch and the chemistry between the two leads sparks on screen. The cinematography is very elegant and perhaps portrays a 'truer' version of British societies - both country and town - with their choice of film locations. There are some very romantic moments such as the proposal in the rain and Darcy helping Lizzy into her carriage. What i found interesting was that i didnt mind not seeing the leads kiss at the end - it was a tender moment which reflects the mechanics of their relationship; not based on physical attraction but of two like-minded people. It would have been nice to see the double wedding at the end but the excellent two hours or more spent watching this masterpiece more than makes up for that.
