Sortie cinéma : Shakespeare in love

par Elisa Gy

Mardi 10 février 2009, les élèves de 4ème5, ainsi que plusieurs classes de 3ème, sont allés au cinéma "Le Nickel" à Rambouillet pour assister la projection du film "Shakespeare in Love" de John Madden (film récompensé par 7 oscars !).

Voici le synopsis du film :

En l’été 1593, le jeune poète et dramaturge au talent prometteur William Shakespeare, criblé de dettes et harcelé par son commanditaire Henslowe, promet de lui livrer bientôt une nouvelle pièce, "Romeo et Ethel, la fille du pirate", dont il ne possède en fait que le titre. Lady Viola, qui vénère les sonnets de Shakespeare, rêve de devenir actrice, ce qui est rigoureusement interdit aux femmes. Qu’a cela ne tienne, elle se déguise en garçon et décroche le rôle de Roméo. William découvre vite l’identité de son jeune premier et en tombe follement amoureux.

Ils furent séduits car cette comédie romantique qui leur permit de découvrir le théâtre du Globe à Londres célèbre pour avoir abrité de nombreuses représentations des pièces de William Shakespeare... et pour avoir brûlé accidentellement lors d’une de ses dernières pièces.

Les élèves de section européenne anglais 4ème et 3ème le découvriront d’ailleurs "en vrai" lors du voyage à Londres en avril prochain...

Inside the Globe

Voici l’avis des élèves de "Euro 4" :

- Sur le scénario et les acteurs :

"I really liked the film because it is interesting, the actors were good and I liked the story. It’s a romantic film and there are a lot of famous actors and actresses." (Charlotte)

"I liked the film very much because it was very funny. The actors were good and the costumes were very beautiful. The love story between Shakespeare and Viola is sweet." (Pauline)

" I like this film very much because it is realistic and lovely. The end was very moving. I didn’t think it was created in 1998. I think it really deserves the 7 awards !" (Loris)

" I liked the film because it is a mix between comedy, romance and tragedy. Moreover, the actors were bery cute :p "

" What was great about the actors was that a lot of them were very famous because they played in other famous movies : Joseph Fiennes in Stalingrad, Gwyneth Paltrow in Iron Man , Colin Firth in Mamma Mia or Bridget Jones’s Diary, Simon Callow in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Judie Dench in Quantum of Solace, Ben Affleck in Daredevil and Pearl Harbour...just to give some examples !"

" It was very funny ! And the actors were very good players. " (Amandine)

" I liked the film because it was moving and interesting but it was a bit too long." (Nicolas)

" I liked the movie because I love the story of Romeo and Juliet" (Valentine)

" The film was quite easy to understand, even if the play in itself was more difficult".

" I loved the fighting scenes and when it was funny but I didn’t like when they learnt the play". I’m not very fond of love stories."

" I loved the film but the end is sad..." (Margaux)

- Sur les personnages :

" I liked the man who played the prologue because he was really funny, but I didn’t like the little boy with the rats and Lord Wessex because they were really nasty ! "

" I loved Viola de Lesseps ! "

- Sur le décor :

" The theatre was very beautiful ! " (Lucie)

" The costumes were original and beautiful" (Sarah)

A bientôt pour les photos du Globe "en vrai !" ...
