Trama e commenti: cinematografo.it - cinekolossal.com - mymovies.it film.spettacolo.virgilio.it - kataweb.it: Amleto, principe di Danimarca, la piglia alla larga per vendicare la morte del padre, avvelenato dal fratello Claudio. ... Cinepresa mobilissima (splendida fotografia di Desmond Dickinson) al servizio di una versione di impianto psicoanalitico, legata al complesso d'Edipo. Severo, un po' aulico e, insieme, moderno. Leone d'oro a Venezia, Oscar per il miglior film, per Olivier attore, per scene e costumi. J. Simmons (Ofelia) non lo prese per uno scarto di pochi voti. Con Romeo e Giulietta, il dramma di Shakespeare che ha avuto il pi alto numero di adattamenti cinematografici: una trentina pi una ventina di film derivati o parodistici. Oltre a quella tedesca e muta del 1920 con l'attrice danese Asta Nielsen, le versioni pi note sono quelle del 1969 di Tony Richardson con Nicol Williamson e i 65 minuti di Hamlet (1976) di Celestino Coronado col principe interpretato dai gemelli Anthony e David Meyer.

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDbentertainment.msn.com - tvguide.com - britmovie.co.uk - enotes.com - en.wikipedia.org - rottentomatoes.com - everything2.comfosteronfilm.com - allmovieportal.com - combustiblecelluloid.com: Despite the three other very good movie versions of William Shakespeare's Hamlet (1990, 1996, and 2000), many world scholars still associate the quintessential film version with Laurence Olivier's 1948 version. It's almost as if Olivier were being credited with writing the play himself. But, having seen all four versions recently, I've come to realize that it's a difficult prospect to choose the best one. Rather, each version has elements that are superior but none renders the others completely obsolete. Olivier directed this version of Hamlet, as well as playing the lead role. It was three years after his highly successful (and equally revered) Henry V, on which he pulled off the same stunt. Whereas Henry V was in jubilant color, Hamlet is quite the opposite, in brooding black and white... (Jeffrey M. Anderson).
