This review is from: Hamlet [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I received my copy of Hamlet, dying to watch the unabridged version (or based on the unabridged text) as mentioned in the amazon video details page, and to my dismay, realised my version was only 121 minutes long. It is not the unabridged Hamlet - it is shortened and adapted. The Hamlet based on the unabridged text of Shakespeare (as claimed by amazon) is up to 4 hours long. Still very good, but sadly, not the real thing! Can anyone tell me where to get the unabridged copy of Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet?
