Synopsis:
Hailed as one of the most successful adaptations of Shakespeare, Derek Jarman's 'The Tempest' is also, unsurprisingly, one of the most unconventional. Though keeping the essence of the text, the film's greatness lies in Jarman's skill at creating a visually stunning, erotically charged world of haunting imagery. Flamboyant, highly atmospheric and full of Jarman's punk era attitude, the famous finale, in which Elisabeth Welch sings 'Stormy Weather' surrounded by sailors, is one of the most memorable, and campest moments in British cinema history.
