Movie Info

At least the 22nd time William Shakespeare's most famous tragedy has been brought to the screen, Kenneth Branagh's film adaptation of Hamlet was the first to preserve Shakespeare's entire text, uncut and unabridged. Moving the action into the 19th century, Branagh cast himself in the title role and, as in his adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, assembled an eclectic group of actors that mixed veteran Shakespearean performers (including John Mills, Judi Dench, John Gielgud, and Derek Jacobi)

One of the better versions of Hamlet.

Kozintsev's film is probably the most cohesive of the five [Hamlets].

Striking Soviet imagery will send chills down your spine

Kozintsev emphasizes the imprisoning moral architecture of Elsinore, not by obvious claustrophobic visuals, but by a rich, widescreen frame and purist, black-and-white imagery...

November 7, 2006 Full Review Source: Filmjourney

Elsinore's prince, via the great Soviet director Grigory Kozintsev. A devastating, extraordinary achievement.

Audience Reviews for Gamlet (Hamlet)

Perhaps the best and most captivating on-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Kenneth Branagh's performance blew me away!
