I have always been a little timid about watching or reading The Merchant of Venice because of what I have been told about its "anti-semitic" overtones. I figured it would be nothing short of "Jew" bashing and being Jewish I was not in such a hurry to acquaint myself with this play. What a pleasant surprise! Shakespeare does what he does so well - giving us insight into human nature and its flaws. Shylock and Antonio, as played by Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons, respectively, are seriously flawed,multi-dimensional human beings with whom one ends up sympathizing. The feelings and emotions Al Pacino gives to his character, Shylock, is nothing short of amazing. One ends up empathizing and sympathizing with Shylock's pain. The rest of the cast were a delight to watch also. I highly recommend this flick.

The Merchant of Venice was presented as a period piece true to Venice and the bustling Renaissance. Costumes, lighting, and scenery helped to make the speeches believable. Al Pacino was great as Shylock. I especially enjoyed Pacino as Shylock.
