Item description for Henry V (Arkangel Shakespeare) by William Shakespeare, Brian Cox, Bill Nighy & Arkangel Cast ...

Henry V is a study of kingship, patriotism, and heroic determination, tempered by tender comedy as Henry courts Katherine, Princess of France. Young King Henry, attempting to consolidate his power, invades France, believing he has a rightful claim to the throne. The dramatic battle of Agincourt, where the English are outnumbered by the French five to one, provides some of Shakespeare's most stirring and memorable poetry. This wonderful production is performed by Brian Cox, Bill Nighy, and the Arkangel cast.

Reviews - What do customers think about Henry V (Arkangel Shakespeare)?

Excellent Peformances, Interpretation  Jun 26, 2007
This rendering of Henry V is generally very well acted, with superb articulation by the actors. Compared to many film (and stage) versions of Shakespeare, where the actors seem to want to speak the lines as quickly as possible--seemingly because they feel that's how they should present emotion--and end up slurring the words together, the actors in this recording can communicate emotional range in a very articulate way, with excellent enunciation, well-placed pauses, and good modulation. The dialogue truly comes alive, and nuances unnoticed while reading come through clearly.

Another strong point is the evenness of the quality of the acting. All the characters, however minor or major, are played equally well, a sign of a well-directed play.

The music is at times a little sappy (for example during the St. Crispin Day's speech), but on the whole, if you want to really connect with spoken Shakespeare, it's hard to go wrong with this choice, either for teachers of Shakespeare or simple lovers of the bard.
