This interpretation of the ‘to be or not to be’ soliloquy from Hamlet is animated and narrated by Jonathan ‘Mr Ferder’ Williams. A superior example of Lego animation, or brickfilms, it is crisply shot and edited, with some wry comic business taking place in the background. The idea of having Hamlet’s words spoken by a skeleton (and more of a skull than a skeleton) is something of an imaginative coup.
