    Absolutely spectacular. The choreography for the sword fight was incredibly intense- even more so if you consider the era in which this was made.

    Now I'm off to see Burton's version.

    quote:
    So was the play really 5 hours?


    Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996) which contains every word runs to four hours.

    And the 1938/9 Broadway season's first uncut Hamlet, ran for four and a half hours.

    More here.
