Jarman's Tempest is very far from Prospero's island and storm-wrecked ships. The labyrinthine settings and startling shifts in time and style reflect the director's aesthetic and artistic preoccupations in that images are associative and poetic rather than at the service of Shakespeare's narrative. A highly original film from one of Britain's most innovative directors, whose early death was a tragic loss to cinema.
