Henry V by William Shakespeare( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der junge englische König Heinrich V. (1387-1422) besiegt bei Azincourt (1415) die französische Übermacht und sichert durch seine Heirat mit der französischen Königstochter den Frieden. Kongeniale Übertragung des Shakespearschen Königsdramas, die von der Bühnenszenerie des historischen Globe-Theaters ausgeht und auf der Suche nach einer typisch filmischen Optik mit Massenarrangements und fahlen Farben experimentiert, die zeitgenössischen Bildteppichen entlehnt sind. Der Text wurde um etwa die Hälfte gekürzt, die im Drama fehlende Schlacht bei Azincourt als filmischer Höhepunkt hinzugefügt. Dabei erlebt man die ausgezeichneten Schauspieler in ihrer gesamten Gestalt, verfolgt nicht nur ihre Mimik, sondern auch ihre Gesten und Bewegungen, was dem Film eine für traditionelle Theaterverfilmungen ungewöhnliche Eigendynamik und Ausstrahlung verleiht. Ästhetisch anspruchs- und reizvoll und nicht nur für Shakespeare-Verehrer ein Genuß. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 2000/2001 (CD-ROM)
