    Grigori Kozintsev directed the most impressive Shakespeare screen adaptations. Korol Lir and Gamlet are brilliant poetic movies. 8 years 5 months ago

    Beautiful cinematography.
    The photograhy in black and white is awesome.
    The casting perfect.
    (Try to see it with subtitles in a language you really master, because in old English it's pretty tough...)
