Midsummer Night's Dream review Product Description



Midsummer Night's Dream movie was released Feb 15, 2002 by the Warner Brothers studio. A film adaptation of Shakespeare's tale of foolish mortals, squabbling fairies and mismatched lovers.
Most of the play takes place deep in the forest, where a quartet of human lovers have fled: Hermia and Demetrius, happily in love, do not wish to be split up by the law of their land Midsummer Night's Dream VHS for sale. Hot on their heels are Lysander, out to claim Hermia for his bride, and Helena... hopelessly besotted with Lysander Midsummer Night's Dream movie.   ...See Full Description

Come Be Enchanted
Computer enhancement could not better this movie. Made in 1935, obviously with the help of an actual band of magical sprites, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a dream of a movies If you appreciate Shakespeare and Felix Mendelsohn, a group of famous actors and actresses enjoying their roles tremendously, and laughing at your fellow man, this movie is for you. An ageless plot wrapped around sprite addled lovers, a play within a play full of actors who could easily be your relatives, and a group of fairies who delight in tricking each other as well as humans,all add up to fun for everyone. Just don't sit next to someone who needs it all explained or you'll miss the next twist in this deliciously twisting plot.

A Darker Version.
Past reviewers have failed to mention the glorious ballet sequences in this,the most beautiful film I have ever seen,despite the fact that it's in black-&-white. Choreography by Nijinsky's sister, Bronislava, no less. And Oberon is given full value by being played as a superb Erlkonig, not the slightly wet character one usually sees. Victor Jory, usually cast as a Western villain with a black hat, seizes the chance to display his classical training, & the aura of evil trailing after him from his previous roles emphasises the darkness of his performance. This, of course,is where James Cagney plays Bottom! Other pieces of casting are equally surprising, & they work surprisingly well. A pity that this lovely film is not now shown. Daphne. )

Reinhardt and Shakespeare
Reinhardt's 1935 film version of Shakespeare's "MidSummer Night's Dream" certainly isn't Shakespeare. However, it so captures the essence of characters and magic . 77 years laters the film remains a complete joy, and no stage production has ever or can ever rival it.
