The Shadow (1 star)

This article is from 2008.

Enthusiastic acting is let down here by an over-written, confused and dizzyingly fast-paced script about a poet who loses his shadow. A barrage of contradictory metaphors dealing in the currency of light, dark, joy, greed, friend, foe and princesses, sadly undermines the nostalgia for good old-fashioned storytelling which I suspect was the initial drive behind this production.
