essential for OU course,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King Lear (Korol Lir) - (Mr Bongo Films) (1971) [DVD] (DVD)
had to buy this for OU course on Shakespeare text and performance. It is a fantastic adaptation of the story of Lear and his daughters, a great study in the nature of madness and the circumstances that bring it about. Shostokovich's score captures the emotion and feel of every scene and you can see the influence the film has had on modern film-makers. Brilliant.
