Director's Notes


Click to buy Heavy Metal Hamlet now via ArtFilms Jacqui's version of the famous classic uses heavy metal music to drag Hamlet's gormless inaction from dim history into a disaffected 70's reality.

It is a short form version that follows the full story about a Danish prince whose father's sudden death throws him into a flat spin.

Through a meeting with his father's ghost Hamlet finds out his uncle (now married to his mother) is the murderer.

Hamlet spends the rest of the play thinking a lot, but not taking any action.

It is said that Hamlet is a play that most encapsulates the existential dilemma of the 20th century. In behaviour veering between levity and solemnity; savagery and courtesy; irony and pathos; Hamlet reveals to us, in a series of images, the hysteria of his emotions. In this unsettled world the Chorus as conduits to the other characters in Hamlet's dream/nightmare flesh out the narrative.
