This adaptation of Shakespeare's +Merchant of Venice was directed by Trevor Nunn, who has become one of the most respected British stage directors of his time. The production transplants the setting of the film to Germany on the cusp of World War II, and is similar to the milieu of Bob Fosse's Cabaret. Derbhle Crotty portrays Portia, while the play's most famous character, Shylock, is essayed by Henry Goodman.
