"One less Hamlet" produced with the premium quality is shot for about two months in the autumn of 1972 in Cinecittà (and for some outdoor scenes) in two studios, a large leather all doubled with a white floor and lit diffuse light, which allows not to change the lights for different scenes; the other smaller and all black. Masini uses full diffuse light in scenes with candles or in effects produced by mirrors. The film is shot in 35mm color (but some scenes are in black and white). The camera is often held in the hand with frenzied movements where large angles abound. the editing of Contini is generally very fragmented. It's Bene's shortest film. The film is presented in official competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 21, 1973. It is distributed in theaters in Milan on May 8, 1974 in Rome on November 8. See more
