Pride & Prejudice


This movie is about classical romance between youths. The story takes place in the countryside in England. An actress, Keira Knightley plays Elizabeth (Lizzy) who is smart and confident. Elizabeth believes love is the most important thing in a marriage. An actor, Matthew Macfadyen who plays Daracy is very cold, and he is proud of his prestigious family. He thinks a good blood line is very important in his marriage. Elizabeth and Daracy fall in love, but they don’t reveal their minds easily. They misunderstand and hate each other. Darcy has too much pride, and Elizabeth has too many prejudices about him. Finally, they are getting to know each other’s love.



I like the beautiful countryside scenery in England in the movie. In the opening scene, Elizabeth walks along the river reading a book. Personally, I like this scene very much, because Keira Knightley looks very smart and pretty and shows the character of Elizabeth in the movie. Also, the ending scene is very impressing. At a dawn, Elizabeth and Daracy confirm their love, and Daracy kisses on the back of her hand. This scene is very romantic. Pride & Prejudice is the best romance movie that I have ever seen. I could also see lots of beautiful scene in Atonment that same director.



Through this movie, I could think what is marriage. I felt how difficult it is to meet husband sincerely. Once upon a time, marriage was an economic contract and 'love matches' nearly unheared of. In this movie, lizzys' parents wanted she marry a stable person if she doesn't fall in love with him. But she refused him, her family really scolded her. In the movie, she luckily meet better person; darcy, it is difficult to meet perfect person like darcy again in reality. Even though its story happend a long time ago, we could also see situation like this in drama, movie. Many people do an arranged marriage through parents, professional company. Supporters of arranged marridges point to higher success rates, lower divorce rates. However it seems a little sad to those who wants to marry lover.



Moreover, I realized pride and prejudice obsruct to seeing real spirite. Appearances and first impression can be deceiving. It's impossible to know whole person in just one meeting. However most people judge other people by appearences. In this movie, Lizy misunderstood Darcy's inward, and then she is getting to know she made an error.


Actually I recommend both this book and movie. They each has benefits and great things. When I read this book, it was too hard to interpret old vocabulary. However the story developed slowly, carefully, so I could founder this story absolutely when I read it. In the movie, it was good thing that I could see beautiful landscape like real setting.

This movie touched me a lot, too. I liked the beautiful sceneries and the sweet melody of the BGM.
But the best part of the book was including various characters. Futhermore, each of them all represents someone who is seen around us. So watching the movies or reading the book gave me a chance to think over people around me and think about my own pride and prejudie.

This movie was also really impressive for me. I think that most women can sympathize with this kinds of story. I always think that there arn't many movies which focus on the woman. So I like this kinds of movie. Compare with the novel, this movie was not bad. Every element of the movie was well balanced. Razz

I frequently noticed students carrying this book, and thought that if it's a course book I won't take that class by any chance since the volume of the book was kind of overwhelming to me. However, your introduction and review on the movie based on this book sound so romantic, as you said, I might decide to take it for next term. I enjoyed your journal.
