Quotes

Hamlet - Prince of Denmark: What a piece of work is a man? How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, form in moving, how express and admirable, in action, how like an angel, in apprehension, how like a god. The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals, and yet to me, what is this grotesqueness of dust?

A perfect reincarnation of the master of theater
29 September 2017 | by margotmaesmmSee all my reviews

Once more a thrilling and intense performance from Cumberbatch. A perfect reincarnation of the master of theater, amazingly performed by an impressively convincing cast. A fantastic immersion from all the actors and for every audience. An absolute must-see for any amateur of Shakespeare.
