Grigori Kozintsev’s renowned Soviet production ranks among the finest adaptations of Shakespeare on film. His strong visual style places the characters on a rich widescreen canvas while preserving the inward dimension of Hamlet’s character.

The film that does justice to Shakespeare's masterpiece. Shot in black-and-white ‘Scope, in dank interiors and seaside exteriors every bit as atmospheric as those in Orson Welles’s Othello, this highly political and imaginative interpretation of Hamlet is a poem of light and sound.
La France avant de Mai 68. Un film tès sensible plein de references filosofiques que se tient bien a cote des premiers fils de Rohmer. J'ai apprecies beaucoup la description detailee de l'environement de pecheurs et ses families.Je l'ai aime beaucoup
Dark, fairly romantic adaptation of Shakespeare's play. Kozintsev focuses mostly on themas of death and madness and it's a good thing to do. These are things that make 'Hamlet' so brilliant play. And the King's epiphany? I'm speechless.
