An amazing documentary made by two extremely passionate actor/filmmakers. You can't help but get taken along for the ride thanks to the enthusiasm of Dan and Giles. This is part road movie, part buddy movie, part passion project and one that has helped me to view Shakespeare's work in a new and enlightening way.
Downloaded it yesterday and have watched it twice already. Such an incredible cast and what an achievement by the 2 actors Dan & Giles. Opened my eyes to Shakespeare and what it means to the people who perform his work. Definitely will be making a trip to the Globe soon - inspirational!
Plus the soundtrack is brilliant, the guys are hilarious and the animation is cool too!
This is an amazing documentary. Have always found Shakespeare very dull before now but watching Muse of Fire has enlightened me and made me want to watch more 😀
