"Hamlet is a bell that awakens our consciences" wrote Grigori Kozintsev and his version of Shakespeare's troubled Prince of Denmark (from a translation into Russian by Boris Pasternak) focuses on an introspective but very human young man whose way of thinking is his principal weapon but who is nonetheless capable of firm decision. The result is a brilliant exposition of thought transformed into action, shot in stark, black and white photography to the accompaniment of a score by Shostakovich.
