in consequence of the missive, P1, penned by Cheryl
I confess the first time I didn't care for it. I blame P&P2 for this, which spoilt all adaptations for me as it was the first one I ever watched and expected all others to be the same.
On an autumny Sunday, with the golden sunshine outside, and the colourful trees around, I think of and watch P1.
-I love the slow pace of it. It gives me time to immerse myself.
-One is treated to a full dose of JA lines.
-The outdatedness of these adaptations (P1 and other) completely fit in with the 'period' feeling I harbour for JA's novels.
-The music at the beginning rouses a 'nostalgic' and sad feeling in me, which I like very much. I have no idea why it's nostalgic. I heard it for the first time in P1. Quite often, I just leave the DVD on without pressing 'play' just so that I can feast on this music and this feeling.
- Maybe I am imagining, but the eyes of this Anne do show her sadness, anxiety, resigned to fate feelings. Her body language conforms to the surroundings and situation.
- I like the scene when after the first meeting at uppercross cottage, Anne moves about like in a dream, looking aimless and dazed.
-Louisa's giggles are really irritating, but made me think - CW could never fall for such a girl.
-Charles is just like I imagined him in the book. I like the scene on their way back from the 'long walk' when he keeps dropping Mary's arm. And all the other times when he teases Mary. The right person to deal with her I think.
- Admiral Croft. He is fabulous. I just love him in P1, and his remarks about the 'mirrors' and the 'smoking chimney'. The way he hesitates over names, never sure what it is.
There is a lot more. But then the post will get too long for anyone to bother with it.;-)
I love P2 as well. It is so different from P1, and I enjoy the interpretation there too.
