(Grigori Kozintsev, script by Boris Pasternak, music by Dmitri Shostakovich, 1964, Soviet Union) To quote from The Guardian: “Forget your Oliviers and your Branaghs: the greatest cinematic Dane was Russian. As well as being the prince of Soviet actors, Innokenti Smoktunovsky was a Red Army hero who spent time in Stalin’s gulag, and his boyish, bewildered Hamlet knows only too well what it’s like to be crushed by the machine. Manoeuvring the camera around a warren of suffocating spaces, director Grigori Kozintsev makes the tragedy into a parable of power and powerlessness.”

Prince of the Himalayas
(Sherwood Hu, 2006, China) Jaw-droppingly beautiful Hamlet set in ancient Tibet. With some real surprises.
