AMAZING!, 14 Oct. 2000
This was simply wonderful production. The coast of Illryia beautifully portrayed as the Cornish coast, and acting that catches every subtlety, finery and grain of wit that Shakespeare wrote.
The performance by Imogen Stubbs (Viola / Cesario) was wonderful. Such fine diction and catching every facet of this diamond of a character.
I am usually a great fan of the Kenneth Brannagh Shakespeare's but I rate this over his production. Stunning direction by Trevor Nunn; despite is recent mess ups at the RSC!
Well, if you want to see a great film full of emotional turmiol, amazing happenings, wit and dramatic irony by the bucket loads then this is the one!
