Ally's rating of the film Jane Eyre

Not enough flow between the scenes that needed more explanation and resolution. Charlotte Gainsbourg gave a sweet performance, but it wasn't Jane Eyre; nor were her acting counterparts up to par. Sadly, I felt no chemistry between Jane and Rochester, but have yet to decide if that was the directing or acting. Overall, I get what Zeffirelli was doing with the long drawn out shots but there was something off about it.
