"Tempest" (1982) is a film adaptation of Shakespeare's play by director Paul Mazursky. The story follows a bourgeois, middle-aged New Yorker who moves to a Greek island with his daughter in an attempt to escape the monotony of his work and a stagnant marriage. As he navigates through his mid-life crisis, the protagonist's journey parallels the themes explored in Shakespeare's "The Tempest." However, according to a review, Mazursky's attempt to draw parallels between the modern story and Shakespeare's play falls flat, resulting in a long and tedious experiment that fails to live up to its Shakespearean inspiration.
