In the Sixteenth Century, there was a great intolerance against Jews. In 1596, in the liberal Venice, Bassanio asks for a large amount to his friend, the merchant Antonio, to travel to Belmont and propose the gorgeous Portia. Antonio has invested all his money in his ships and borrows from the usurer Shylock, who proposes an unusual bond: if Antonio does not pay the money without any interest three months later, he might receive one pound of his flesh instead, at his choice. When Shylock's daughter Jessica runs away home with all his money and jewels, he becomes furious. Meanwhile, the load of Antonio sinks with three different vessels and he is not able to pay his debts with Shylock, and the Jew goes to court of Venice claiming the execution of his deal. In spite of many requests, his tough heart does not accept any other agreement further than the one established in their contract.... Show more

Originally, I didn't like this movie that much, I found it rather boring and very overrated, until I watched it second time. There are films for which it is worth being a cinema maniac, for those who have not yet had the opportunity to watch, I put The Merchant of Venice to watch online for free, because I rarely go on television. That's really great if a movie can keep me focused for the whole duration, that's what The Merchant of Venice is doing. In my opinion, some of the actors roles were just a masterpieces. I am a huge fan of this director and this movie was his finest. I regret that I did not watch this movie long before, although I had the opportunity. Now everyone can see this movie online free on FlixTor.... Show more
