with English subtitles Dir Grigori Kozintsev Russia 1963 2hrs 30mins With Innokenti Smoktunovsky, Michail Nazvanov Considered one of the best film versions of Shakespeare's Hamlet, and by some critics the best, this 1963 Russian masterpiece by director Grigori Kozintsev is a haunting black and white depiction of Hamlet's anguish and his revenge of his father's murder by his politically aspiring uncle. A memorable and exciting experience enriched by Shostakovich’s dramatic music. Pre-film talk 7pm Fiona Ford discusses Shostakovich's film scores.
