Un amleto di meno (1973) AKA One Hamlet Less


A comic spoof drawing irreverently on both the Shakespeare play and the 1877 story by Jules Laforgue. Hamlet is a would-be playwright. He suffers from inept Freudian analysis by Polonius, and Ophelia and Gertrude are women conjured up in his erotic imagination. After Claudius kills his father, Hamlet only thinks of preparing to put the theatre production in Paris that he was getting ready at Elsinore.

Director: Carmelo Bene.
Stars: Carmelo Bene, Luciana Cante, Sergio Di Giulio, Franco Leo, Lydia Mancinelli, Luigi Mezzanotte, Isabella Russo, Giuseppe Tuminelli, Alfiero Vincenti. 

1973 Cannes Film Festival – Nominated for the Palme d’Or.
