What a bargain! What a feast!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shakespeare Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
All the plays of the world's greatest playwright for just £2 each - that's an offer I couldn't refuse. The plays were produced 30 years ago, so don't expect hi-res pictures and Hollywood style budgets with special effects and hundreds of extras. But who cares about that, when you get a lot of fine acting, thoughtful and exciting productions (with, admittedly, a few dull ones), and 37 of the world's best plays, brimming with kings and commoners, heroes and villains, lovely princesses and fiend-like queens, ghosts and fairies, battles and duels, young love, lechery, jealousy, sublime poetry and dirty jokes, carnal, bloody and unnatural acts, things dying and things newborn, - a veritable feast for your imagination and emotions. An added bonus for us foreigners in the dark corners of Europe is the chance to see those plays performed that haven't made it to the silver screen.
