Cross-dressing, kidnapping, mysterious disappearances, family feuds: Shakespeare’s classic As You Like It covers a lot of ground, and this striking reworking only ups the ante. Boasting an all-female cast, this radical update of the Bard maintains the whimsical spirit of his original text with a twist, serving as a critique of the exclusion of women in traditional Shakespearean theater. Directors Chen Hung-i and Muni Wei paint this gender-bending new world with dazzling visuals and candy-colored animations, offering a truly unique, queer vision.
Drawing inspiration from video games, manga, and Taiwanese opera, As We Like It takes place in the near-future, in a bustling internet-free district of Taipei. Young Rosalind has fled there in a desperate search for her missing father. With the aid of her cousin Celia, she aims to bring her father back to stop her uncle from seizing control of the family business. But matters get more complicated when Rosalind dons a disguise as a man and ends up falling for the charming Orlando.
