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

Trivia

The whole production was shot in just 15 days in July 2006, giving a minutes per day ratio of 10 minutes every day. No shooting day overshot by more than one hour even though each day was scheduled for only eight hours. On the final day of the shoot (on Southend beach) 3 and a half hours were lost due to the tide being in. Alexander Fodor totally revised the shots, heavily pre-prepped the actors and charged ahead giving them only one take per shot. The end result being that the day finished 10 minutes ahead of schedule. See more »

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 »
