Multi-media collage
20 February 2008 | by TinuvielasSee all my reviews

Ambitious experimental project produced by Germany's Theatre Channel "ZDF-Theaterkanal", only recommended for viewers familiar with the play since it delivers a lot of fragments instead of a story: Distinguished German Actors play/sing/interpret various scenes (or, in the director Herbert Fritsch's words, "visions") from Hamlet, the whole thing adding up to a huge patchwork-puzzle of interpretations. Herbert Fritsch's basic assumption is that through the filter of "Hamlet" every possible story can be told. The end-result is a collage of silent-movie, animated, experimental and conventional sequences, surprising, diverting, confusing and very avant-garde.
