Love's labour's lost a romantic musical comedy by William Shakespeare ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The handsome young King of Navarre and his three friends -- Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine -- make a pledge to retreat for three years to study literature and art, depriving themselves of all comforts, including the company of women, for the duration. The pledge survives intact for exactly as long as it takes the beautiful Princess of France and her three friends -- Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine -- to travel to Navarre on a diplomatic mission from her father. Shakespeare purists will probably be horrified that Branagh has juxtaposed the Bard with classics by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George and Ira Gershwin, in a loving homage to the great musicals of the '30s. He has also thrown in every cliché of said musicals, reviving the abandoned genre with 90 minutes of elaborately staged flossy, frothy, campy, cotton-candy fun
