Hamlet

Directed by Svend Gade, Heinz Schall
Germany, 1921
Drama, Silent

Synopsis

Danish silent movie-star Asta Nielsen formed her own production company to make this film, in which new elements are combined with features (and a few lines) familiar from Shakespeare’s version of the legend. The most important of these changes sees Hamlet made into a female character – a princess.
