Henry V

Drama | English | 136 minutes


King Henry of England believes he has a justifiable claim to the throne of France. When the French Dauphin insults Henry as being young and inexperienced, Henry decides to invade France. The British meet the French forces and the fierce and bloody  Battle at Agincourt commences. It is 1415. Before the battle, Henry delivers his famous speech to the troops, “We few, we happy few,  we band of brothers, for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.” The British defeat the French. France is thus under the control of England and the French King, Charles VI, accepts Henry as his successor. While discussing peace, Henry woos and marries the French Princess Katherine.

A fine group of British craftsmen and actors, headed by Laurence Olivier, have concocted a stunningly brilliant and intriguing screen spectacle.Olivier’s performance of Henry sets a standard for excellence. His majestic and heroic bearing, his full and vibrant use of his voice, create a kingly figure around which the other characters highly spin.
