1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful. Not Harold Lloyd., 6 Dec. 2012
Awful. A con. As other reviewers say - only one film features Harold Lloyd. Furious. Chucked it in the bin.

Ignore any positive reviews, they must have come from the publishers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Collection, 14 Jun. 2012

I agree with other reviewers that this is perfect. I've been working my way through the BBC Shakespeare collection over the last few years and have enjoyed many moments and interpretations but this tops the lot. Centrally both Robert Lindsay and Cherie Lunghi separately and together bring out the magic of the dialogue and the relationship with skills unique to them.

And they are surrounded by toned down but intelligently crafted performances from others - Michael Elphick as Dogberry is one, but there are many - which really let the characters speak for themselves and the comedy and romance sparkle.

One I'll be watching again - and although I like Kenneth Branagh and enjoyed the film - I agree that this is better. It seems to try less hard, it has nothing in the way of distractions and the production frames the story and allows it to speak for itself.
