Storyline

Set in a surrealistic, nightmarish, Kafkaesque no man's land, this version of the famous Shakespeare play centres on the ghostly, supernatural aspects of the play. The text is the original Shakepearean, but the characters' personalities are changed, so for example, Polonius (originally a doddering old man) becomes Polonia a scheming femme fatale, who is plotting to get her younger sister Ophelia (who she controls through the use of addictive drugs) married into the royal family. It's dramatically shot, and is not so much a modern version (there are no references or images of the modern world at all) as a lateral concept. Written by Alexander Fodor

Goofs

On the first day of shooting James Frail, playing the ghost, insisted on keeping his blue-eye contact lenses in all the time, even though they had picked up dirt. This resulted in a scratched cornea, with a massive bruising effect looking like a black eye. To get round this you'll notice some scenes where the Ghost has suddenly become "Joe Cool" and is now wearing sunglasses (the director's). See more »

Quotes

The Ghost: If thou didst ever thy dear father love, revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.
