Twelfth Night or What You Will is a 1996 British film adaptation of William Shakespeare's play, directed by Trevor Nunn and featuring an all-star cast. The adaptation is given a northern Central European feel, set in the late 19th century, with Orsino and his followers shown wearing Czapka headgear, often associated with Prussian or Polish army officers of the time. It was filmed on location in Cornwall including scenes shot at Padstow and Lanhydrock House, Bodmin.
Malvolio: Were not you even now with the Countess Olivia?
Cesario: Even now, sir; on a moderate pace I have since arrived but hither.
Malvolio: She returns this ring to you, sir: you might have saved me my pains, to have taken it away yourself. She adds, moreover, that you should put your lord into a desperate assurance she will none of him. Receive it so.
Cesario: She took the ring of me? I'll none of it.
Malvolio: Come, sir, you peevishly threw it to her; and her will is, it should be so returned: if it be worth stooping for, there it lies in your eye; if not, be it his that finds it.
Sir Toby Belch: Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale?
Sir Andrew: I was adored once too.
