Fuck Hamlet

Synopsis
A student film. Berlin, six years after the fall of the wall, is depicted as a permanent building site which long lost its symbolic power to suggest a new prosperity. People are unemployed and homeless beggars are now a familiar part of the Berlin landscape. Till is an out-of-work actor and gets up every day before sunrise to repeat the same ritual: he recites Hamlet’s soliloquy ‘to be or not to be’ on the roof of his house. Till hopes that his self-enforced ritual will help him find work in the end.
