This film is a version of Hamlet set in the world of Finnish business. The plot, needless to say, is exemplary but the adaption too works very well and combined with great performances and incredibly beautiful black and white cinematography make this a truly outstanding film. Highly recommended for fans of either Shakespeare or Kaurismäki.

1987. Written and directed by Aki Kaurismäki. A parody of William Shakespeare's HAMLET by the Finnish master. I love the particular sense of humour of this director and the group of actors he uses to work with.
