Othello Comparison Shakespeares Othello was a wonderful play that can be compared closely to the movie O Although O is set in the twenty-first century it has many similarities to Othello including relations to the characters names The order of events that take place in both the movie and the play are almost exactly alike from the meeting between Desi Desdemona her father and Oden Othello all the way to Oden killing himself Hugo also plays a very close part to Iago from the play He plots to make Oden think that Desi is cheating on him and he succeeds in that He gets the handkerchief from his girlfriend Emily Emilia and gets Oden to agree to killing both Desi and Michael Cassio In the play Iago has to dirty his hands near the end by killing Rodrigo because Rodrigo didnt succeed in killing Cassio The movie reenacts this because Roger doesnt complete the task of making it look like Michael killed himself so Hugo has to kill Roger and make it seem as if he saved Michael The movie of course is set in earlier times so it uses guns while the play uses knives However Desi is killed the same way that Desdemona was which is by being strangled to death These two are even exact to the point that Emily was killed by Hugo This movie does a wonderful job of portraying Othello in a more recent setting and helping many understand Shakespeares play a little better AS most movies there are a few differences but the entirety of the stories compare directly showing that these things can happen no matter what time period it may be
