Considering its age, I'll cut it some slack
30 September 2006 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This isn't a particularly great film to watch today, as the film is so very, very sketchy you'd hardly recognize that it's based on a Shakespeare play! Imagine boiling all of his play into only 13 minutes! Well, they did it and the general plot IS recognizable, but all of the subtlety is missing. About the only really good feature is the costumes--very good for 1910. So I would NOT advise lovers of the Bard to watch the film, but instead see it as more a curio for historians and Cinephiles. Interesting, though not all that good and hardly something many people would want to watch in the 21st century due to its brevity and lackluster production values.
