The Merchant of Venice is a 2004 romantic drama film based on Shakespeare 's play of the same name . It is the first full-length sound film version in English of Shakespeare's play; most other versions are videotaped productions made for television. There had been a British early sound nine-minute short subject production of the trial scene in 1927, with Lewis Casson as Shylock and Sybil Thorndike (Casson's wife) as Portia. The 2004 adaptation follows the text very closely, only missing occasional lines. The director, Michael Radford , believed that Shylock was Shakespeare's first tragic hero , who reaches a catastrophe due to his own flaws: [ 2 ] thus the film does not show Shylock purely as a villain, but partly also as a victim. It begins with text and a montage of how the Jewish community is abused by the Christian population of Venice .

A conversion disorder causes patients to suffer from neurological symptoms, such as numbness , blindness , paralysis , or fits without a definable organic cause. It is thought that symptoms arise in response to stressful situations affecting a patient's mental health, however no concrete evidence has been found that proves episodes of conversion are not symptoms of an underlying organic cause. Telling the patient that the blindness, stroke, or movement disorder has no organic cause will not cure them; it is important to recognize that the patient's symptoms are very real, not malingering or factitious. Conversion disorder is considered a psychiatric disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders fourth edition ( DSM-IV ). [ 1 ]
