I bought this because I'm doing Hamlet for my college class in teaching Shakespeare. It's only 30 minutes, brief, and to the point about the basics of Hamlet's story. I think the quality of the animation could have been a lot better which is why I gave it an 8 and it could have been a little more detailed in the storytelling. But if you're looking for something to keep the kids interested, I think this is effective in teaching Hamlet without overburdening them too much. Hamlet can be a difficult subject to teach at any levels. I applaud the animated Shakespeare tales and suggest that they improve their quality and animated figures to the quality of today's technology. There is so much that could have been improved and worthy of doing so. Tilda Swinton has the voice of Ophelia in this tale. So please there is so much that can be done with animation and Shakespeare.
