Audience Reviews for The Merry Wives of Windsor
One star for Richard Griffiths as Falstaff, one for Ben Kingsley as Frank Ford, and two big stars for Prunella Scales and Judy Davis as Mistresses Page and Ford respectively. Perhaps the best of the BBC Complete Shakespeare comedy productions, but you know, for me, Shakespeare's comedies really do pale in comparison to his romances, his histories, and, most especially, to his tragedies. The power of wit, no matter how brilliantly masterful, can rarely move me like the power derived from human actions gone disastrously awry.
