Based on a translation by novelist Boris Pasternak, this memorable Russian film version of one of Shakespeare's greatest works provides a visually beautiful and haunting experience. Russian stars Innokenti Smoktunovsky and Anastasiya Vertinskaya turn in remarkable performances as Hamlet and Ophelia, while the poignant black-and-white cinematography and striking score by composer Dmitri Shostakovich add dramatic tension to the story.
