Pride and Prejudice (1980– )
22 November 2004
I've heard many people faulting this particular adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Pride & Prejudice' and i know many people prefer the 1995 version with Colin Firth in it. Admittedly i think it's very good but i am very much in favour towards the 1980 version. Colin Firth does carry off the character of Darcy very well but i strongly feel that David Rintoul is the better actor here. On a whole this adaptation is extremely beautiful and stays relatively true to the novel itself. Another favourite of mine is Mrs Bennet - i think she's wonderful and it makes the film worth watching time and time again. I can sit for hours and hours watching the developing relationship between David Rintoul and Elizabeth Garvie as the novels infamous couple. I rate it as 10/10.
