- General info
This triumphant BAFTA and Academy Award winning production of Shakespeare's "Henry V" is a classic story of conflict, courage, honour and heroism. Kenneth Branagh is electrifying as Henry V, a king whose inspired leadership and full-blooded courage rouses his bewildered and bedraggled men to arms against a French army five times greater than their own. Henry V is an epic explosion of bloody battles and powerful performances from the cream of British acting talent, including Brian Blessed, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Derek Jacobi, Paul Scofield and Emma Thompson.

- Henry V review by JD
Absolutely outstanding. The most gifted Shakespearian actors shine through the medium of celluloid. Branagh in particular is intensely moving during the soliloquies. A slightly anticlimactic musical piece at the end did not prevent the piece being totally uplifting.
