::: Branagh's ''Hamlet'' is definitely set in a WorldOfHam, but this was probably necessary to maintain the audience's interest in a four-hour-long movie.

*** The scene in which Gertrude drinks the poisoned wine is also open to interpretation; in some adaptations, she is unaware that there is poison in the wine and her line "I will, My Lord, I pray you pardon me" is said as if she's just having a good time. In others, "I will..." is delivered to imply that she knows exactly what's in there and has been DrivenToSuicide.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Claudius and Gertrude's relationship is a minor example--most modern viewers probably don't consider marrying your brother-in-law to be incest. At the time the play was written, however, it was viewed on the same level as marrying your biological brother, hence Hamlet continually calling the marriage incestuous.

** In the David Tennant version Polonius is the standout--the character is difficult to play due the need to be simultaneously hilarious and boring, but Oliver Ford Davies nails it; he's also the only character other than Hamlet to blatantly break the fourth wall.er

** Ophelia is this for artists, judging by the number of painting depicting her compare to any other characters except for Hamlet himself.

*** Was she DrivenToSuicide or was her death accidental?



* IncestYay:
** Laertes and Ophelia. Laertes even gets into a tussle with Hamlet over who loves her more, and he shows a fascination with her sex life (or lack of).

%%* UnfortunateImplications: There are ''so many'' about women it isn't even funny. Hamlet in particular has some pretty sour opinions about women.

** On one hand, seeing so many well-known faces in the Branagh version is impressive. On the other, it can ring up ''many'' giggles due to the HeyItsThatGuy effects.
