Product Description

When the King of Navarre and his three courtiers forswear all pleasure particularly of the female variety in favour of a life of study, the arrival of the Princess of France and her ladies plays havoc with their intentions. Using every kind of verbal gymnastics to poke fun, Shakespeares most intellectual comedy is brought to hilarious life in Dominic Dromgooles highly entertaining production, rich in visual humour and sexual innuendo. Jonathan Fensoms knot garden and original music by Claire van Kampen create the framework for an engaging performance by an excellent cast. Filmed live in High Definition and true surround sound.

We were going to see a live production of this (quite rarely performed) Shakespeare play at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, UK by the Northern Broadsides/New Vic company and wanted a DVD production to watch in advance and so bought this. The production is very rich and the open spaces of The Globe Theatre are used very well. Most of the actors are very good and do a good job of delivering the lines in what is a very full production/true to the original text. What we found was missing, though, was more of revelling in the absurdity and downright silliness of some of the scenes (e.g. the scene where the two scholars are discussing matters). The live production we subsequently saw in Leeds did this much, much better and had the audience rolling about with laughter for much of the production and they really "brought the play to life" more I think than this production does. In summary, therefore, a very professional and lavish production (e.g. costumes) but, for me, it did not make full use of the material provided in the way the live production we saw did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love's Labour's Lost, blu-ray 20 Oct 2010

About the "movie" : very, very funny and spectacular. Wonderful acting, wonderful pacing, fine camera work.
About the image : beautiful high definition.
About the sound : spectacular. On my sound system, it felt like the play was taking place in my room, the fight scene included.

I can't praise enough this blu-ray Globe Theater collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bard can be great fun! 23 Oct 2010
By Peter G
A vastly enjoyable production of one of Shakespeare's lesser known comedies. It's funny, fast-paced and full of 'the quirks of invention'. Difficult language? Not with these brilliant actors. Their delivery and body language make this play instantly accessible. And the closing song is so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 12 Aug 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This performance is everything a Shakespeare comedic play ought to be! It's uproariously, laugh out loud funny at times, brilliantly acted by all players and the diction, the clarity with which the lines are delivered are first rate - and it's in The Globe, a setting imitating that for which Shakespeare wrote. Excellent in every way and surely a definitive performance of Love's Labour's Lost. This play is a bit 'verbose' at times, the linguistic sparring and ironic arguments demanding of close attention, perhaps at the expense of full enjoyment of the plot, but this high energy, brilliantly creative production, boldly interactive with its audience and ever mindful of their entertainment, lifts and makes sense of even the 'wordiest' exchanges. Shakespeare would have loved it!
