 The story of the magician Prospero’s attempts to stop his daughter's affair with an enemy.

Peter Greenaway's most enthralling feature is a visual tour-de-force which re-interprets Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'. Sir John Gielgud gives a moving, heartfelt farewell performance in the title role. Told with the help of multiple on-screen images and the strength of Sir John Guilgud narration and acting skills, Greenaway brings a new face to Shakespeare’s timeless masterpiece which is utterly innovative, sensual, and challenging as Shakespeare originally intended.

Filmclub theme December 2019: Shakespeare Readapted
Shakespeare was often adapted to the big screen, but some adaptations took quite some liberty with the original plays. December will be dedicated to unique and beautiful cinematic reinventions of Shakespeare’s plays “Romeo and Juliet”, “'The Tempest” and “Hamlet”.
