Shakespeare for all Ages

Germany / 2022 / Animation / 02:42 min

Shakespeare's works are timeless - this film proves it! Awarded with the Seal of Approval"Highly Recommended" the highest distinction of the FBW, the German federal authority for evaluating and rating film and media. "How can you give the target and age group "smartphone" an overview of the work of this unique literary genius without getting bogged down in long-winded lectures on verse and drama theory? The filmmaker and artist Hannes Rall has turned this consideration into a very short and yet for that very reason so great animated film. (...) He succeeds in depicting the poet's most famous plays in an immediately recognisable way with individual images that flow dynamically into one another. A smart, entertaining and coherent Shakespeare homage in about 3 minutes."
