- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
A unique combination of performance and commentary. Topics include body language and camera angles; rehearsal vs. performance; set design, costume and make-up; and historical context.
Meyer's translations of Ibsen are a major fact in one's general sense of post-war drama. Their vital pace, their unforced insistence on the poetic centre of Ibsen's genius, have beaten academic versions from the field.
A powerful statement of [Ibsen's] radical beliefs about gender, the folly of idealism and the nature of modern love.
