All of my problems with the 1943 film are pretty much in evidence here. Shortened script (the Lowood scenes are of course much shorter), Doctor Rivers replaces St. John, and is the doctor who helps Mr. Rochester out when Bertha attacks Mason. There is also that scene where Mr. Rochester basically tells Blanche that she is a gold-digger and I suppose that it is an entertaining moment to listen to, but I would have rather had the gypsy scene!
Ingrid Bergman is a... different choice to play Jane. Obviously she is a fabulous actress, but she does have a rather prominent accent, although it isn't terribly jarring I suppose. I just wonder how older Jane developed it, when younger Jane did not have it (or rather when younger Jane had an American accent). Although Ingrid did sound a bit too demure when she was talking to Rochester, her voiceovers had that touch of defiance that I like to hear and made her a better Jane in my opinion. Robert Young as Rochester is alright I suppose, his way of conveying gruff and brusque seemed to speak in a low monotone. I would have liked to hear more in his voice, for him to savor the words more, so in that I was disappointed.
The adaptation overall is really lighter than the original novel and even the 1943 film (which had the brooding lighting and cinematography - and Orson Welles' eyes! - to make it more Gothic). The music used kind of reminded me of "Gone With the Wind", which didn't help evoke the tone of Jane Eyre. As an adaptation it lacks a little, but the fact that Ingrid Bergman and Robert Young are even playing the roles kind of make up for it.
