Though the story was made into films several times, nothing is more impressive than the one directed by Olivier, a Shakespeare director and respected actor. Completed in the middle of World War Ⅱ, the film was requested by the UK government to win the legitimacy of the war and victory.
In the history of cinema, it marked the beginning of producing a Shakespeare in large scale. To mix of play and cinema, Olivier decided to shoot it in a set of the Globe theater.
He adopted various shooting techniques and styles of the past into a colorful and cinematic presentation. Because the project was initiated by the UK government, a character like British betrayer was removed from the plot. Olivier created a wonderful Henry V with his brilliant performance. The film is grandiose in scale and also presents an example of how to take a cinematic approach to the Shakespeare’s plays. (LEE Sang-yong)
