About “ The Dane ”

The Vision

"The Dane" is a feature film adaptation of William Shakespeare's play "The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark".

This tense, psychological thriller with a supernatural kick follows a cat and mouse game being played out between a quick witted young prince and his devious uncle - with their lives and the fate of the kingdom on the line. Major differences between this and previous film adaptations include the ages of the characters, accessibility of the language, time period, and religious symbolism. Read on for more details.
