One of the most important scenes in the play Hamlet is the scene in which Hamlet orchestrates a scheme to prove the guilt of his uncle Claudius through mimicking his crime in front of him The scene is important in the play to expose certain aspects of the plot as well as led a hand to character development The scene can be difficult enough to enact on a stage but on a movie screen it can be a real challenge In Carlo Zefferelis production of Hamlet he sets the scene up beautifully and it lends to the overall production of the movie Even though the details in the film sometimes dont correspond with those in Shakespeares play Zefferelis vision remains for the most part in line with the real story Creating a way to show either TV other films or plays inside a movie can sometimes be challenging Aside from technical aspects like separating crews and equipment from a complicated set filming the scene on schedule and dealing with the multi-faceted world of live drama in this case the scene must look realistic and it must convince the viewer that not only is something going on but they should be thinking about the motivation behind it From the first quick cut to the backstage area of the play within the movie from Mel Gibson as Hamlets triumphant proclamation that The plays the thing we see that the scene will be well organized as well as artistic The viewer is taken instantly to Medieval Denmark during a festive and clamorous night with the royal family and the players who are there to entertain them Not only are the players there to provide a dramatic addition to the festivities but they are assisting if unknowingly with Hamlets complicated plot of revenge As Hamlet looks on with delight the viewer sees the story he has written unfold as if sitting in the audience Quick cuts to the lookers-on
