A Pleasant Silent Shakespeare Feature
12 October 2001 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This little silent film does a nice job of getting across the flavor of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night". Naturally, Shakespeare loses a lot without the dialogue, but the characters and situations are entertaining in themselves, and this does a good job of covering the most important parts of the amusing plot with its mix-ups. Most of the characters are rendered with good acting, especially the engaging Viola (Florence Turner) and the haughty Malvolio (who was played by director Kent). It's a pleasant short feature, and crafted carefully enough that even without all of the dialogue from the original play you can enjoy it.
