4.0 out of 5 stars A lesson for us all!, 5 May 2011
This review is from: Timon Of Athens (BBC Shakespeare Collection) [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
Timon of Athens is a very generous man. But he little realises that all his many good friends are fly by nights.
Sadly he ends giving it all away, and yes, you guessed it, none of his friends will help him out.
So after losing it all, he ends up sleeping on the beach....but you will need to watch the rest as i do not want to spoil the ending.
As a point of interest. That sex kitten Dianna Dors is in this production but i bet you will not recognise her.
Overall an interesting tragedy, one that is still relevant today and should serve to sound a sound warning in this day and age. A little slow but not dull. But then i like Shakespeare!

This review is from: Timon Of Athens (BBC Shakespeare Collection) [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
Money, friendship and its betrayal, honest feeling, and reckless generosity are explored in this very fine Jonathan Miller production for the BBC. Timon of Athens is a collaborative work of Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton. It is probably an incomplete work due to the sketchy nature of some of its parts and characterizations. In this production Jonathan Pyrce gives an astonishingly intense and metalic performance of the title role of Timon. A little known and infrequently performed work, this is a highly recommended performance.

A flawed play but reveals Shakespeare's mind in a powerful way.
