Format: DVD
This was a beautiful adaptation of the play the Merchant of Venice. Actually being filmed in Venice and in some of the surrounding lush and marvelous historic buildings and palaces and having breathtaking, dramatic lighting and costumes gave the film a feeling of a work of art in and of itself.
The superstitious and evil anti-Semitic practices of the place and era are shown as well as Antonio’s part in the conspiracy to whisk away Shylock’s daughter and stolen property. This background information gave a realistic build up to Shylock’s agitated mental state and makes the audience understand when he later goes after his just and rightful pound of flesh with such vengeance. Al Pacino steals the show with his wonderful performance. When I first read the play in High School I thought the character cared more for his money than his daughter – but this performance by Pacino gives a much more believable view of the character’s relationship with his daughter, Jessica.
Shakespeare, is years ahead of his time, his great humanitarianism shines through in this play – women educating themselves and saving the day with their bravery and intellect, a black suitor received with warmth and humor during a time of slavery and racism, and a Jewish man shown as a person with feelings and self worth in a time when Jews were considered sub-human ‘dogs’ by the Christian majority.
Although a negative view of Christianity is depicted in the opening scene where Franciscan monks are shown using the actual words of Paul from the Bible and Martin Luther to bring to trial by drowning (if guilty) a Jewish man being charged with money lending as he is thrown into the Grande Canal.

This movie gives the background to "The Merchant of Venice". One has to understand the Background for the play, otherwise some of the Dialogue seems confusing. The Play is very well acted, it must be said that this is not a "Light Comedy" ; rather it is a Drama. If someone is looking for a "Character Study" with a lot of depth, I recommend this DVD.

This is one of the great works of a great writer. There is so much to learn from this story it inspired me to write a blog ([...] about it and courtroom dramas. I just saw a very good live performance at the Stratford Festival mainly because I liked this movie version so much. An excellent cast, shot in Venice in the Elizabethan period. Subtitles would have made this even better.

Before viewing this movie, I never thought that Pacino would be able to do justice to the character of Shylock; however though I've seen many Shylocks, both in film and on stage, Pacino's performance is the standout.
