Review

Richard III relocates the play’s events to a fictionalized version of UK in the 1930s. Ian McKellen, taking the role of Richard, co-produced and adapted the play, which became the base of the film. UK in the 1930s. A bloody civil war is concluded with King’s murder. Edward, the eldest son of House of York, won the war and becomes the King. But the younest Gloucester disgruntles during a celebrative party. He, a hunchback, is ugly-faced with the disabled left arm, but full of wiles with charismatic leadership. He gradually reveals his ambition. The drama of ambition and desire reminds us of the European society filled with the dark shadow of fascism after World War I. (LEE Sang-yong)
