These days, I watched again Pride & Prejudice, taking particular attention to the 1980's (not 1979, as I wrote in the opening) version. The first proposal is, for me, the part that defines if you're a good Darcy/Elizabeth. For that reason, I'm putting the three sequences (1980/1995/2005) for a better comparison. I like and dislike the sequence in the movie. The rain reinforces Darcy's internal turmoil, but I still prefer the book... it means the versions that tryed to follow the book as in 1980 and 1995. Matthew Macfadyen is a good Darcy, but he sounds to me more timid than proud. So he comes after Colin Firth and before David Rintoul. Keira Knightley is not good as Elizabeth, she is not a "Regency Girl", not in this movie or in any other...

Esses dias, eu assisti novamente Orgulho & Preconceito, tendo especial atenção à versão de 1980. A primeira proposta é, para mim, a parte que define se você é um bom Darcy ou uma boa Elizabeth. Por esse motivo, estou colocando as três seqüências (1980/1995/2005), para uma melhor comparação. Eu gosto e não gosto da seqüência do filme de 2005. A chuva reforça a agitação interna de Darcy, mas eu ainda prefiro o livro ... isso significa que as versões que tentam seguir o livro, como em 1980 e 1995, são melhores. Matthew Macfadyen Darcy é um bom Darcy, mas ele me parece mais tímido que orgulhoso. Então, ele vem depois Colin Firth e antes de David Rintoul. Keira Knightley não é uma boa Elizabeth, ela não é uma moça da Regência, pelo menos não neste filme ou em qualquer outro ...

It's amazing. He seems both taken aback and angered by her words, yet also still very attracted to her at the same time. If I understand the book properly, it was not common for a person of lower social status to speak up to somebody who was above them. Darcy was always impressed with Elizabeth for that and her wit.

This was the best version of Pride & Prejudice in my opinion and this was beautifully done, so romantic and raw, showing the feelings that were inevitably there behind their guarded language. It wasn't some bloated six hour production that attempted to do a word for word translation, but it managed to keep the spirit of the book while adding the aspect of humanity that Austen so cleverly hid away from the dialogue.

Imo, the 1995 version with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth is the best version of P&P.

I watched this a while ago and I loved it! Although, I didn't like Matthew at first because he seemed too old for her (based on looks hehe please do forgive me for being judgmental ) , but after seeing this scene, I changed my mind. He's absolutely beautiful! (his eyes <3) I prefer the 2005 ver Mr Darcy. :)

I really like this version. And for people who think it's not "true enough" to the book - while Austen often does not give much detail, if any, on the tone of the characters, leaving it up to the imagination, in this scene she does repeatedly mention Elizabeth's anger.  While the scene is shortened from the book, that's fine for a film. Most of what they say is either direct quotes, paraphrases of Elizabeth's latter thoughts, or lifted from the letter he later writes. That letter is about 4 pages long - having it read out loud in its entirety would have been boring. Elizabeth also has another 5 pages or so argument with herself over the ordeal. Another boring scene for a movie. Condensing it into an emotional argument was a good choice. Perhaps a bit more emotional than is historically accurate, but the book does have Elizabeth saying "You are the last man I would marry" so I can't say it's an outrageous interpretation. It's suppose to be an unusually "uncivil" conversation. As for the criticism that Elizabeth is too "arrogant" in this. In the book, she does admit to herself, that it was her....wait for it....pride and prejudice which led her to so harshly judge Mr. Darcy.
