Star studded rendition of the classic Shakespeare romantic comedy which sees two princes, Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard) and Benedict (Kenneth Branagh), battling to win the hearts of those they love. The object of Benedict's desire, Beatrice (Emma Thompson), acts as his sharp tongued sparring partner, while Claudio's path to true love is obstructed by the evil meddling of the embittered Don Juan (Keanu Reeves). Love, of course, triumphs eventually in Kenneth Branagh's sunny adaptation, filmed in Tuscany.
Kenneth Branagh's 1993 production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is a vigorous and imaginative work, cheerful and accessible for everyone. Largely the story of Benedick (Branagh) and Beatrice (Emma Thompson)--adversaries who come to believe each is trying to woo the other--the film veers from arched wit to ironic romps, and the two leads don't mind looking a little silly at times. But the plot is also layered with darker matters that concern the ease with which men and women fall into mutual distrust. Branagh has rounded up a mixed cast of stage vets and Hollywood stars, among the latter Denzel Washington and Michael Keaton, the latter playing a rather seedy, Beetlejuice-like version of Dogberry, king of malapropisms.--Tom Keogh

It was filmed on a low budget in a limited time with many one-take scenes and is all the bolder and brighter for it. There is a rush of action and delight running through the film that is almost breath-taking.
The music adds a real heroic touch too!
However, WHY DOES THE DVD NOT HAVE SUBTITLES?
I teach this text to a variety of students, from lower processing ability to higher. One of my students is deaf. Subtitles for any Shakespeare DVD is essential.
Please address this.
The dvd is working, so I guess if you want to buy it just to watch it it's better than fine for this price; but if it's for collection or for a gift, look again
