The key to the film's success is in the acting, especially in the sparks that fly between Branagh and Thompson.

Director Branagh, who altered the play imaginatively for the screen, gives wonderful import to this silliness from long ago.

A lusty, vigorous, sun-drenched romp in which two parallel love affairs intertwine with comedic and dramatic results.

This film cements Branagh's status as a great director of Shakespeare, and perhaps of film in general, as well.
