The Internet Movie Database       Movie Reviews

The story behind the staging of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado, from start to finish.

I do love G&S, and Mr. Otter claims that when we went to see this in the theater, he kept looking over at me and I was just beaming with smiles through the whole thing. This movie is not only interesting, well made and well acted, it is an absolute JOY to watch.

Jim Broadbent and Allan Corduner play the duo, and are wonderful. The movie shows the whole process, including their squabbling over the story, the backgrounds (some fairly unsavory) of everyone involved, the rehearsals, everything.

And it’s brilliant. And beautiful. And full of lovely music. And funny. And charming.

What are you waiting for?
