"I found the film dreadfully slow but strangely compelling. Solomon Glave was particularly impressive. Ms. Bronte's toes would have curled at the unnecessary language but the joy of the film was that instead of being deafened and infuriated by obtrusive and unsympathetic backgroud 'music' as in almost every other production, here we heard the wind and rain, etc., - natural sounds which were much more evocative and impressive. This made it a joy to watch and listen to. When will someone invent a button to press which will get rid of all the rubbish that spoils almost everything else?"
