Period and Historical
This monumental near four-hour, unabridged version of the play has Kenneth Branagh directing himself as the Prince. Admirable, and challenging, this is very showbizzy staging. In addition to the leading players there is a veritable galaxy of star appearances to tweak the interest. While some critics might say this is not so much a movie as a chorus-line of talents, Branagh has to be admired for the ambition of this ravishingly beautiful staging.
