3.0 out of 5 stars Enormous fun, but far from perfect, 29 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love's Labour's Lost [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
After the wonderful include-every-word-from-all-sources Hamlet Branagh takes almost the opposite approach, paring down the text to a minimum (see some of the deleted scenes included on this disc to get a sense of how much was cut) and adding thirties musical style songs and dances. The result is charming, amusing, delightful and great fun. Unfortunately that is all it is - and Shakespeare should always offer more. Compared with Hamlet and Henry V this is lightweight in the extreme. Better to compare it with the similarly textured but much superior Much Ado About Nothing which is almost perfect. A fine one to add to the Branagh collection, but not amongst the best. Incidentally when are Hamlet and Henry V being released on DVD?
