the translation deserves a credit mention.
30 January 2018 | by emuir-1See all my reviews

I was delighted to find this film with English subtitles, for which the translation deserves a mention. I don't speak Russian and therefore do not know how much of the Shakespearian style poetic flow was due to Alexander Puskin, but the English style works in a way modern English could never. Set at the same time as W. Shakespeare was writing his plays of plotting and deceit, with rivals skulking in corners muttering asides filled with 'forsooths' and 'wheretofores' this film of the play fit right in. Add the spectacle, Falstaffian broad farce at the inn and the gorgeous settings, I found this film a total feast for the eyes and ears.
