detail

A tragicomedy about finding method in madness. Film and theatre intertwine to reveal Shakespeare's classic hero as we have never seen him before. Hamlet leaps from the screen onto the stage to confront the audience with the fundamental questions of human existence. Is the individual responsible for the society he lives in? Does the end really justify the means? What is reality anyway? And how come Hamlet dies twice?
