Subject:        More Shakespeare on Film in Asia

I have found two more examples since my lastpost:

Chopra, Vidhu Vinod. 1994. 1942: A Love Story. India. Eros. Sound, col.,
mins. (There's a Hindi Romeo and Juliet performance.)  On DVD.

Kato Mei, dir. 1977.  Wanpaku Pakku--Manatsu no yoru no yume / The
Impish Puck-A Midsummer Night's Dream. Japan. Sound, col., mins.  It is
based on a story by Inoue Hisashi, but the basic plot features children
putting on a musical version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Not available on video or DVD.

I also forgot to add From Hell, which begins and ends in a Chinese opium
den.

There's a mention of Shakespeare in the Insomnia remake (starring Al
Pacino).
