Very few films come close to the brilliance Kenneth Branagh achieved with his first foray into screenwriting and direction. Henry V qualifies as a masterpiece, the kind of film that comes along once in a decade.

As great as was Laurence Olivier's movie version of Henry V, Kenneth Branagh presentation is much more powerful and realistic.
