A perfect adaptation of Shakespeare's most perfect play.
Alice Liddel (-firstname.lastname@example.org) from dublin, ireland
25 July 2001
Quite simply one of the best ever Shakespearean adaptations, because it
achieves the near-impossible balance of comedy and melancholy that makes
'Twelfth Night' the favourite Shakespeare play of the discerning. More
either, 'Twelth night' makes tangible a feeling of longing, the
fine puppetry, the richly detailed mise-en-scene, the haunting Elizabethan
pastiche score, all frame characters alone and desiring unrequited. this
courtly anguish is satisfyingly countered by the cruel, physical humour of
Toby and Aguecheeks' world, but even here, Malvolio's mirroring
returns us to sadness.
