The Beautiful People,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hamlet (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
For me Shakespear is about grit, passion and texture. Mr Branagh and his beautiful people just cannot do it - period. I had hoped his Hamlet would change my mind but this is a slick Hollywood-style production that - for me - did the Bard no favours. It is rather like a fruit salad that has been put through a blender, smooth and with no particular flavour. Personally, I like the lumps!
