A tragic and lovely story, however the film got a little spielberged along the way and wound up dwelling on the typical American family moments.

Henry V
So, with Shakespeare's script it always had the potential to be awesome. But, Branagh and the incredible cast who wanted to work with him made this film AMAZING.

Just fabulous, really. All Shakespeare fans, history buffs, Francophiles and Anglophiles should watch this.
