Shakespeare would have been pleased
While maintaining the location and time period of the original play, this film gives us a much clearer insight into Othello as a character and as a story than many of the supposedly more important versions. The dialogue is trimmed to what is essential, the settings are atmospheric, and the cast is great. You will never forget the story after you see this version.
Sir Laurence Fishburne? ;o)
I’ve always enjoyed Kenneth Branagh’s versions of the Shakespeare classics, as he always does a very good job, but in this movie, the one who lifts the whole movie, is none other than “the-always-great-actor” Laurence Fishburne. Surely he has made some poor choices in films, even though he’s a wonderful actor, but in this one we’re truly given the real Othello: the passion, the intensity of jealousy as it grows stronger alongside with Fishburne’s well portrayed paranoia and, furthermore, we’re finally given a black Othello!
I don’t think they could have chosen a better Othello. Who else could have given him that blend of sympathy/antipathy, love/hatred and, not to forget, those fiery eyes…? Branagh is good as always, but not at his peak, Iréne Jacob’s Desdemona is fairly good but a bit bleak, whilst Laurence Fishburne truly lifts it and makes it a very interesting and enjoyable movie. Do watch it.
