This is Derek Jarman’s representative work in the 1970’s and one of his box office hits in Europe. His works are known for being punkish and experimental. Prospero is the self-portrait of Jarman in agony. With the director’s ego reflected in the protagonist, Jarman depicts Prospero as an artist, not a dictator or politician of an island. Although he continued to translate Shakespeare and other classics into cinemas, The Tempest is unique in his rendering of the original with his own sensibility. While making the film, he lost his mother. So he dedicated the film to his mother. As he reshaped his punkish interpretation of a classic into a cinema with modern sensibility, the film confirms how the universality of Shakespeare affected artists in various fields. (LEE Sang-yong)
