How not to do Shakespeare
28 October 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have seldom seen such two-dimensional, amateurish acting. It's a waste of film and an insult to Shakespeare. In a village hall or as a primary school Christmas play it might just about be acceptable, but from professionals it's embarrassing.

Apparently I have to provide at least ten lines of comment, but I've said all that needs to be said and more than this travesty deserves. Everybody in it speaks with an utter lack of naturalism, as if they're trying to make the lines sound as artificial as possible. Every character is given a single note to strike, and all complexity excised; half the time the note is inappropriate, and many of the actors don't even achieve that. The idea that these sorry specimens could make a living as actors while talented people wait table for years before getting a break is sickening.
