Note "In the inspired Olivier concept, Shakespeare's play begins as a performance in the Globe Theatre, shifting in broad cinematic terms to an epic narrative of Henry V, who had developed from a dissolute youth to a purposeful monarch. Proving his ability as a soldier and skillful leader, he unites the dissident factions in the English army and goes on to crush the French, against enormous odds, at Agincourt. Arranging a treaty with the French court, he woos Princess Katharine to whom he is formally betrothed as part of the peace agreement."--Product description.
Summary Enrique V, el joven rey de Inglaterra, no es mas que un mu~neco entre las manos de la Iglesia: convencido por los clerigos de invadir Francia, se decide a entrar en guerra para reivindicar el trono del pais vecino. La guerra culmina en la sangrienta batalla de Agincourt y, poco a poco, el rey debe luchar contra la moral cada vez mas hundida de su tropas y contra sus propias dudas.
