In the words of the film critic Roger Ebert, this latest version of Charlotte Bronte’s classic gothic novel effectively captures the atmosphere of the genre, with “ungovernable eroticism squirming to escape” amid “gloomy shadows of crepuscular castles.” Bronte’s novel was first published in 1847.
Its enduring popularity is explained by the romance, fine characterisations, and evocative atmosphere she created in her story. However, for those of
a Jungian bent, the continued appeal of the story is also explained by the presence of archetypal themes and by the depiction of what happens when
the tension of opposing energies is held to breaking–or exploding–point.
The film is directed by Cary Fukunaga, who creates the gothic atmosphere with “voluptuous visuals and ambitious art direction” (Ebert). It stars Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, and Judi Dench. “Jane Eyre” is a feast for the senses and for the mind, transporting the viewer into a nether world of mystery and suspense. It also provides a vivid example of how the psyche attempts to deal with shadow elements on all levels: personal, cultural and archetypal.
