    • This monumental full-length, four-hour, unabridged version of the play has Kenneth Branagh directing himself as the Prince. Admirable, and challenging, this is a very showbizzy staging - in addition to the leading players (such as Kate Winslet as Ophelia, Julie Christie's Gertrude, Derek Jacobi as Claudius), there is a veritable galaxy of star appearances to tweak the interest. While some critics might say this is not so much a movie as a chorus-line of talents, Branagh has to be admired for the ambition of this ravishingly beautiful staging, although his occasionally patronising direction can be irritating Source - Radiot Times


    • The unforgettable and highly acclaimed full text version of Shakespeare's powerful tragedy makes it's debut on DVD and features a new digital transfer from original 70mm elements, a re-mastered Dolby 5.1 soundtrack, an introduction and audio commentary by Kenneth Branagh, a featurette and Cannes promo.

      Hamlet (Kenneth Branagh) returns home to learn that his father, the King, has recently died and his mother, Gertrude (Julie Christie), has already married his uncle, Claudius (Derek Jacobi). Suffering from shock and grief, the young prince is visited by the ghost of his father (Brian Blessed), who claims that he was murdered by Claudius and demands vengeance. Hamlet must decide whether this tale told by an apparition is true and whether he should exact the vengeance his father demands, realising that his actions may destroy the woman he loves, Ophelia (Kate Winslet), his family and the kingdom he is due to inherit.

      The magnificent all-star cast is led by actor/director Kenneth Branagh and includes Kate Winslet, Derek Jacobi and Julie Christie with supporting cast members Richard Briers, Robin Williams, Jack Lemmon, Billy Crystal, Charlton Heston, Judi Dench, Richard Attenborough, Gèrard Depardieu, Rufus Sewell, John Mills, John Gielgud, and Brian Blessed.
