¿Cómo van a proponer a otro al rango de teniente? ¡Sólo sobre el cadáver de Iago! y sobre los cadáveres de casi todos los atrapados en su trama de venganza. El escritor/director Oliver Parker nos brinda, de la tragedia de Shakespeare, este vigoroso "Otelo", impregnado de celos, pasión y confianza descarriada. Los actores principales de esta historia, que tiene como marco Venecia en la era del Renacimiento, son Laurence Fishburne como el guerrero que gobernaba sus ejércitos pero no su corazón. El Moro que "amaba con imprudencia perocon intensidad", abosrbe su atención no solamente hoy, sino que lo seguirá haciendo por muchos años en está versión espléndidamente actuada e impecablemente filmada

Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray ( visu )
5 editions published in 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Der ebenso gutaussehende wie unerfahrene Dorian Gray kommt gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in London an. Dort steht er dem Maler Basil Hallward Modell, der Dorians beeindruckende Schönheit und Jugendlichkeit in einem Portrait dauerhaft festhalten will. Unter den Fittichen des charismatischen Lord Henry Wotton findet Dorian schnell Gefallen an den hedonistischen Freuden der gehobenen Großstadt-Gesellschaft und lernt, dass sein Aussehen ihm alle Türen öffnet. So wundert es nicht, dass, kaum ist das Bild enthüllt, Dorian ein gedankenloses Versprechen äußert: Seine Seele würde er dafür geben, dass nicht er, sondern das Gemälde altert! Dorians Wunsch wird Wirklichkeit: Während er sich ohne jegliche äußere Konsequenzen hemmungslosem Vergnügen und verbotenen Begierden hingibt, wird sein gemaltes Abbild mit jeder begangenen Sünde hässlicher und grauenerregender. Um sein dunkles Geheimnis zu bewahren, geht Dorian bis zum Äußersten. Jahre später quälen ihn die Geister der Vergangenheit mehr denn je. Als er sich in die junge Emily verliebt, schöpft er wieder Hoffnung auf Erlösung ... (www.film-zeit.de, 24.2.11)
