This is a memorable film and probably one that will be playing on PBS in 2010 when most of the rest of this year's films are forgotten.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Toward "turning many years into an hourglass," Branagh the screenwriter condenses "King Henry the Fifth," while adding in elements from the first and second parts of "King Henry the Fourth." The effect is seamless.

The cast -- including Derek Jacobi as the modern-dress chorus, Paul Scofield, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Emma Thompson, and Robbie Coltrane in an effective cameo as Falstaff -- is uniformly fine without any grandstanding.

It might never be as famous as Olivier's, but it should carry considerable clout for years to come.

A strong, fiery film so good that Branagh has virtually drawn out a fifteen-year film career from the unrepeated success of this debut.

In the end, Kenneth Branagh's Henry V stands tall alongside the wealth of 1990s Shakespearean adaptations that followed it, and marks a bold directorial debut.

In this alert, rousing interpretation of Henry V, Branagh beats down the doors of high art and drags the sleeping bard into the light of modern day.
