Since K. and I both love Charlotte Gainsbourg, we decided to watch Franco Zeffirelli's 1996 version of Jane Eyre. I thought it was really terrible. In order to focus on just the romance, they decided to cut out most of humor and all but a little of the gothic horror. I realize you have to lose a lot of Bronte's novel to make it into a two hour film, but when you cut away so much of the witty reparte, I don't see why the characters even fall in love. Bah, give me the 2006 BBC mini-series over this any day. In fact, give it to me right now.
