When she's funny the picture feels sharp and light on its feet. Suddenly you remember how merciless and cutting Austen's satire can be, even in the brutal '90s.

Yet in its high spirits and wicked good humor, Emma is a delightful film--second only to "Persuasion" among the modern Austen movies, and funnier, if not so insightful.
