Reviewed by Kevin Smith 7/10

Trevor Nunn's beautifully photographed and acted, deftly written film is oneof the most enjoyable adaptations of a Shakespeare play ever made. HelenaBonham Carter is pitch perfect as the beautiful Olivia, who in "deepmourning" for her dead brother, falls in love with Cesario (who happens tobe a woman named Viola dressed up as a man, wonderfully played by ImogenStubbs, the only actress I've ever seen able to create both a charming Violaand a totally believable Cesario), meanwhile Viola falls for the Duke offictional Illyria (the exquisite Toby Stephens) who is desperately in lovewith the Lady Olivia. Meanwhile, Viola's lost twin brother (StevenMackintosh of "Gentlemen Don't Eat Poets", excellent again here) winds up inIllyria and adds to the confusion. Wonderful, layered support comes from BenKingsley playing Feste, Olivia's fool. The only flaw, perhaps, is the fewminutes before the conclusion when everything seems to be coated with athick gloss of sugar; the film comes through this unscathed. Trevor Nunncomes through with an exquisite Shakespeare film adaptation (which is a door die task). A great showcase for the heavenly cast featuring some of thebest performances ever by Bonham Carter (save "Wings of the Dove"), Kingsley(in his best supporting turn ever), novice Stubbs, and Stephens. A veryworthwhile effort. Rent it, you won't be let down.

This is, quite simply, the best production of a Shakespeare comedy everfilmed. The plot is delightfully absurd, the acting brilliant, thedirectionsuperb. It is the sort of comedy you can watch over and overagain.

In Illyria, Orsino (Toby Stephens), a nobleman, is saddened because hecannot have the love of Lady Olivia (Helena Bonham-Carter) who ismourning the loss of her brother. Meanwhile, twins Sebastian (StephenMackintosh) and Viola (Imogen Stubbs) both survive a terrible shipwreckoff the coast, but each thinks the other has died. Viola takes theguise of a man and goes to work in the household of the nobleman,falling in love with Duke Orsino. Meanwhile Olivia is taken with Violawho calls herself Cesario. This is the premise of one of WilliamShakespeare's most appealing comedies, Twelfth Night: Or What You Will,updated from Elizabethan England to late 19th century and brought tolife by director Trevor Nunn. It is one of the best interpretations ofShakespeare that I have seen on film.<br><br>Reminiscent of other Shakespearean cross-dressing comedies such as AsYou Like It, Twelfth Night is mostly about the ins and outs of romanticlove but it is also about pride, &quot;overweening ambition&quot;, disguises, andmistaken identities. The play contains some of Shakespeare's mostmemorable characters: Sir Toby Belch (Mel Smith), Olivia's drunkenuncle, his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek (Richard E. Grant) who is alsotrying to court Olivia, Olivia's gentlewoman Maria (Imelda Staunton),Feste (Ben Kingsley), the house clown, and Malvolio (Nigel Hawthorne)the prudish steward. Nunn has assembled a cast that more than doesjustice to the play. Imogen Stubbs as Viola actually looks like ahandsome young man and has a sense of purity and innocence that makesher instantly likable. Helena Bonham Carter brings warmth to thecharacter of Olivia who like Orsino seems to be in love with the ideaof love not the reality. Some have noticed a similarity between thecharacter of Olivia and Queen Elizabeth and interestingly, Olivia isaddressed by Feste as &quot;madonna&quot;, the only time the word is used in allof Shakespeare, perhaps a wry comment about the myth of the VirginQueen.<br><br>The main story involves a love triangle between Orsinio, Viola, andOlivia but the minor characters have more than ample time on stage.Malvolio is both a comic and a tragic figure, said to caricature SirChristopher Hatton, a courtier, romantic pursuer of the Queen and rivalof the Earl of Oxford. Hatton was so fawning Elizabeth called him her&quot;sheep&quot; or &quot;mutton&quot; and this allusion is present early in the play asMalvolio is called a &quot;rascally sheep-biter&quot;, harking back to Hatton'sletter assuring Elizabeth that &quot;The sheep hath no tooth to bite whilethe Boar's (Oxford) tusk doth raze and tear.&quot; Malvolio is a puritan whorails against people having fun, a trait that earns him the enmity ofSir Toby and Maria. To strike back, Maria engineers a joke on Malvolio.She forges a love letter supposedly from Olivia telling him that if hewants her to notice him, he should dress in yellow stockings andcrossed garters and, as he woos Olivia dressed in his strange attire,Malvolio cuts a ridiculous figure (incidentally this is the samecostume worn by Henry VIII when he danced with Anne Boleyn, QueenElizabeth's mother, at a masked ball, before he had her beheaded foradultery).<br><br>While there are many great performances, the star for me is BenKingsley who is totally convincing as Feste, a fool but a knowing onewho functions as an objective commentator of the scene around him,exuding an air of righteous superiority. His portrayal of the priestSir Topas who interrogates Malvolio in a darkened room has overtones ofthe 1581 trial and execution of Edmund Campion, a Jesuit priest who wasexecuted by the English government in 1581. In his speech of less thanfifty words, which appears to resemble nothing but nonsense, there areno less than five phrases which refer directly to Edmund Campion andhis 1580-81 mission to England.<br><br>Richard Desper has pointed out that the mock trial scene works as aparody of the government persecution of Catholic martyrs. &quot;Theplaywright,&quot; he writes, &quot;demonstrates for us a world turned upsidedown, with clowns passing themselves off as men of learning, while menof learning &#133;are pressed to deny what they believe to be true to servepolitical ends.&quot; The ending is too delightful to give anything away butit reminded me of the Ingmar Bergman comedy Smiles of a Summer Night,where mismatched couples get together at a summer cottage to sorteverything out. Malvolio is pitiable in trying to redeem a shred ofdignity but we feel for him when he exits saying, &quot;I shall be revengedon the whole pack of you&quot;. As he leaves, he is the only personsuffering in a sea of happy faces, those on screen as well as those athome.
