Orlando is forced to work like a servant for his brother Oliver, so he goes to win his fortune in a wrestling contest, where he meets a lady of the court, Rosalind. Rosalind (daughter of the deposed duke) is companion to Celia, niece of the deposed Duke, and when the current duke banishes Rosalind from the kingdom, she, Celia, the court jester (and incidentally Orlando) all end up in the forest or Arden, where the deposed Duke holds court. Romantic mixups, cross-dressing, love poems nailed to trees, and a lion await them all. Written by

What a boring picture. I love the works of Shakespeare, but this one is much too long to be seen at one night and it lacks great acting. Still, I have to admit Helen Millen was here at her loveliest. I've never seen her in another picture where she's so beautiful as Roselind in this 'As you like It'. But I don't quite understand what happened with the evil brother from the beginning. I don't understand the role of that creepy guy in the woods too. IT ends so suddenly. There are a lot of problems to be solved, and then simsalabim it ends. Yes, many things remain unclear and unsolved. Maybe I will have to see this again? Not in the next 20 years.
