Hamlet - Cine Concert
Michel Lehmann, piano - La Cinémathèque de Toulouse
Program Info: Svend Gade, Heinz Schall. 1921, Germany
Like a boy. A transposition which nicely shakes up the idea that one can have an adaptation. Svend Gade and Heinz Schall decided to give a whole new meaning to Shakespeare's tragedy based on a text called The Mystery of Hamlet written in 1881. To be or not to be, that is the question, since Hamlet is a character here. divinely feminine camped by Danish actress Asta Nielsen, one of the first vamps of her generation. To save her dynasty, the queen decides to pass off her daughter as a male heir. Gender confusion, burning secret and the awakening of a sexuality.
