One Hamlet Less

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

A parody of Shakespeare with Hamlet as a frustrated playwright, Polonius as a bumbling Freudian psychologist, Ophelia and Gertrude as half-naked fantasy figures. Carmelo Bene's film (derived from one of Jules Laforgue's Moralités Légendaires) begins with some striking visual ideas - pure white backdrops, outlandishly overblown and opulent costumes - and then proceeds to repeat these motifs to the point of monotony and way beyond.
