First of all, once again, it was quite a struggle for Orson Welles to manage to get this film done as it was shot over three years and production was stopped twice, mainly because Wells ran out of... read more

Description: Orson Welles' daring and visually adventurous production of William Shakespeare's classic play. Welles, one of the greatest directors ever, revered Shakespeare and was determined to bring his own versions of the Bard's work to the silver screen, though the studios resisted the idea. Without studio funding, Welles struggled for three years to make "Othello" with his own money. The film won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and critical acclaim but was rarely seen for many years.

"16.1.2020, YLE Areena Toteutukseltaan todella mielenkiintoinen ja kekseliäs, mutta kokonaisuus tuntuu jotenkin hivenen juosten kustulta – leikkaukset ovat usein liian nopeita, ja tarinan kuljetus ottaa välillä tarpeettoman mittavia loikkia liian lyhyessä ajassa.
