Review: “Pride and Prejudice”

„Pride and Prejudice“, after Jane Austen’s novel, directed by Joe Wright, is an absolutely glorious history romance about the love of a man and woman. The film combines history and an all known love stories with a lot of suspense and wonderful performances from the cast.

At first, I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to see this film. I was afraid it would be boring with not much action, a love story like all the others. But it turned out to be the complete opposite:

The film is set in “the old days”, where women were supposed to marry in order to make a living. But Elizabeth Bennet (wonderfully performed by Keira Knightly) from a poor family falls in love with the rich Mr. Darcy (also a great performance by Matthew McFadyen). But just like today pride and prejudice stand in the way of their happiness.

The filmmaking is very good, wonderful romantic landscape is combined with great and emotive music. It’s absolutely beautiful to look at with gorgeous shots. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy together.

It’s a peaceful film with scenes that invite you to identify with the characters. Every character is well chosen and there aren’t any opponents. This might sound boring and it’s definitely no superhero-fights-against-bad-monster-action film. But this is what life actually was like, and you can transfer the message of this wonderful film to your own life.

It’s a film for dreamers and people who like to indulge in romances. I could watch it every day.
