Movie Info

Per its title, the 55-minute documentary The Brontë Sisters recounts the life stories of the famed trio of Nineteenth century English sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, highly regarded for authoring a series of seminal novels including Jane Eyre, Villette, Wuthering Heights, and that work's follow-up, the lesser-known Agnes Grey. The program traces their journeys from childhoods in Haworth, West Yorkshire, England in the 1820s, through prodigious writing collaborations with Bramwell at an early age, and their publication of several novels that turned Victorian Era England onto its head, beginning in 1847. It then covers the premature deaths of all three sisters, prior to 1855. This program - one serves as an unofficial companion piece to André Téchiné's marvelous 1979 feature film The Brontë Sisters (AKA Les Soeurs Brontë), starring Marie-France Pisier, Isabelle Huppert and Isabelle Adjani, and shot in both French and English-language versions. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Les Soeurs Brontë (The Bronte Sisters)

This documentary is far better than the film it documents. Though, I'm not sure that is saying much...

A tragically overlooked cinematic gem. If only this film were easier to acquire outside of France. The costumes, sets, actors, cinematography, and script all helped to paint a very historically accurate and ultimately respectful portrait of the lives of the tragic Brontë family.

I might have liked this movie more if I had not done the "mistake" of watching the miniseries 'The Brontes of Haworth' from 1973 less than 24 hours before I started with this one. The cinematography was beautiful, but so were the Bronte siblings, and I did not buy that. Beacuse this was a film and the other a mini, there were less details in the script. I a way, I was glad that I had watched the longer version, otherwise some things would have bewildered me (as I am not that familiar with the true story of the family).
