Subject: 	Branagh *Henry V*
 
I have found the recent comments on Branagh's *HENRY* V most
interesting.  Prior to my seeing it on video, one of my friends told
me that it changed her life, and another said that he found the
St. Crispin's Day speech very stirring.  Then I saw it, and disliked,
oh, about 95% of the film, starting with the prologue.  My question
is:  is this one of those films that works better in the theatre and
less well on home video?  Or have others who have voiced problems
with it seen it on the wider movie screen?
