Three episodes link together showing hatred, violence, and war. The story centers on the civil wars that Macedonia has endured and is told from the point of view of three different characters. The effect is stunning as events are not in chronological order, and the viewer must put puzzle pieces together. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.

Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Derek Jacobi, Robert Stephens, Simon Shepherd, James Larkin, Brian Blessed, Ian Holm, James Simmons, Judi Dench, Charles Kay, Alec McGowan, Jay Villiers
This version of "Henry V" is every bit as good as Laurence Olivier's 1944 production. Kenneth Branagh comes across the big screen as a heroic Henry who follows his Bishops' advice and leads his soldiers against France at the Battle of Agincourt. Academy Award nominations were received for Best Actor and Director, and the film won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
