Section: Focus & Homages / Britannia B-side: Shakespeare Lives


Undoubtely one of the most renowned works of the English playwright, it provides the director of Chinatown, The Pianist, and Tess, with a unique opportunity. Roman Polanski presents his nightmarish vision of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about the lust for power and its Bloody consequences. Jon Finch is Macbeth, the Scottish war hero, whose insane ambition unleashes a cycle of violence. Prompted by the supernatural prophecy of three witches, Macbeth is goaded by his Lady (Francesca Annis) into slaying King Duncan and assuming his throne. Filmed in rugged North Wales, Polanski used the landscape to accentuate the visual elements of Shakespeare’s play.
