I knew beforehand that the film is not my kind of film in terms of genre, but I decided to go anyway because the kitschy, cloyingly sweet images of the trailer gave me a perverse pleasure. Well, the images of the film are indeed beautiful (in a kitschy way) and moreover the characters turn out to be eloquent, but that is the only pleasant thing about the film. The humor is bland and the story is as boring as it is predictable and consists of nothing other than Emma's couple where of course she will also find the right one and soon you will already understand who that will be. You are probably not allowed to say it nowadays, but this is really a women's film. If you don't naturally care who goes or wants to go with whom, which I think is true of practically every man, then this film has nothing to offer except beautiful images, but in the end they are not enough to keep the attention.

mr. Wordhouse (Bill Nighy) and Mrs. Bates (Myra McFadyen) are by far the funniest characters in this film, but the rest of the cast is also certainly worth it. Anya Taylor-Joy as Emma, with her beautiful big eyes, certainly does a good job. (that bloody nose, hilarious!) The film looks fantastic, the whole atmosphere, the colors, the environment, clothing, lavish dining rooms, what a beautiful cinematography. JP Jeunet-like but at many times even more beautiful!

125 minutes of pure enjoyment with a smile from ear to ear! Lord-like-movie! Go see this.

The genre is in thanks to movies like The Favorite of Little Women. But the Jane Austen film adaptations have always been a success. The best screen adaptations of her stories are those where the story is valued and central, filmed by someone with a love of the books and with enough budget for worthy actors as well as appropriate sets and costuming. Films like Sense & Sensabily and Pride and Prejudice take you into some of the most beautiful stories. You might put Jane Eyre and Emily Brönte's Wuthering Heights in the same category. Although Jane Austen's stories are much more romantic and warm.

Emma. (with the dot behind) has already been filmed. For me the first version that I see, but I would be surprised if there is an even better version that apparently has also remained under my film radar. Director Autumn de Wilde chose the dot (a period) after the title because she really wanted to turn it into a period film (time film). The film also exudes that spirit of the times with beautiful costumes and sets. Wonderful colors that look fresh. The whole is stylish but also cheerful and soft. Humor without slapstick. Romance without corniness.

The film lacks that little bit more of that other Jane Austen film Pride & Prejudice (2005) that really grabs you by the throat. But Emma. will hopefully continue to reverberate for a long time and later appear in many varied lists of the best Jane Austen film adaptations.
