    Loved it!

    I thought that this film was a very original rendition of Shakespeare's work. Barry Lynch, esspecially, did a fantastic job of playing the role of Robin Good Fellow. I recommend it for any fan of the Bard.

    Not My Cup of Tea

    I didn't enjoy the movie at all. When I read the play by W.S. I imagined it in a strict theatrical sense. The director made the movie in a sort of interpretitive dance way, with the fairies coming down in umbrellas and looking like Big Bird with enourmous feathers. To top it off the character of Puck resembles the Chris Kattan SNL character of Mr.Peepers. You won't respect it as a Shakespearen production, but as an unintentional comedy.
