Merchant of Venice film PR

The film does a fantastic job of conveying the emotion of the story, the tension and conflict between Christians and Jews in 16th century Venice

There are some scenes in the film that are particularly powerful, such as the trial scene in which Shylock demands his pound of flesh and the final scene in which Antonio and Portia are reunited. The film is a thoughtful exploration of the themes of justice, mercy, and revenge that run through the original text.  The Merchant of Venice film also features some of the best-known lines of Shakespeare’s work, including “If you prick us, do we not bleed?” and “The quality of mercy is not strained.”

The film also effectively captures the play’s examination of the themes of justice, mercy and friendship. The audience can clearly see the struggle between Antonio and Shylock, and the moral decisions they must make. In the end, the audience is left with the sense that justice may not always be served, but that mercy and friendship can still success.
