This beautifully directed and wonderfully acted adaptation of Hamlet left me breathless. It is touching, powerful, magical and dark. If you've enjoyed films like Hero and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, you will probably love this film. If you are like me, you will actually prefer this film. I can't praise the art direction enough - I could almost touch and taste the film in all of its radiant and sinister moment. This is one I am glad to own. A superb drama.
