The Tempest


Fitting that Jarman would take Shakespeare's famous chivalric romance and turn the genre's emphasis on heterosexual love into a gloriously camp celebration: sailors dancing to hornpipe, a sumptuous bluesy rendition of the song "Stormy Weather" by Elisabeth Welch, and of course nudity galore. Far from a faithful adaptation, this eccentric version of The Tempest is not for Shakespeare purists, but those with an open mind will enjoy the fantastic setting of a crumbling abbey that effectively evokes the Roman Gothic as well as signature Jarman anachronisms and playful, comedic characterizations.
