General information

Rated 4 out of 5

“Hamlet” is a 1996 film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s famous play, directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars as the titular character. The film boasts an impressive cast, including Kate Winslet, Derek Jacobi, Julie Christie, and Robin Williams, among others.

Branagh’s adaptation of “Hamlet” is ambitious in its scope, as he chooses to include the entirety of Shakespeare’s text, resulting in a runtime of over four hours. While some viewers may find this daunting, the film’s stunning production design and cinematography help to maintain interest throughout.

Branagh’s performance as Hamlet is strong, capturing the character’s emotional turmoil and complexity. The supporting cast is also excellent, particularly Winslet as Ophelia and Jacobi as Claudius. The film’s score, composed by Patrick Doyle, is haunting and adds to the overall atmosphere of the film.

One of the film’s most striking features is its use of lavish sets and costumes, which transport the viewer into the world of the play. The film was shot on location in various castles and palaces in Europe, adding to its grandeur.

Overall, “Hamlet” is a beautifully crafted film that does justice to Shakespeare’s classic play. While its length may be off-putting to some, those willing to invest the time will be rewarded with a stunning cinematic experience.
