5.0 out of 5 stars A Hit, A Very Palpable Hit!, 26 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hamlet (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
Four hours of rhyming couplets is not everyone's idea of a fun Friday night in, but in truth you could watch this with the sound turned fully off and still be moved by its beauty and emotional punch.

Yes, it's a masterpiece - both Shakespeare's and Branagh's. Yes, it has an astonishing cast. Yes, the set design and cinematography are stunning and hauntingly memorable, but at the end of the day it's simply a great film of a great story told very well and acted in the most accessible and wonderful way.

Well, there aren't four hours of rhyming couplets in Hamlet. It's mainly blank verse. But even if you have been enjoying it with the sound off (or your ears not on) your review tells me that this is a clever cinematic retelling of the Hamlet story. I'll look forward to watching it and finding out what it makes of Shakespeare's play.
