Hamlet Goes Business

In this wicked and hilarious satire of the corporate world, Kaurismäki liberally updates Shakespeare’s tragedy as a hard-boiled noir b-movie. Finnish comic Pirkka-Pekka Petelius plays an irresponsible playboy who finds himself involved in a vicious boardroom power struggle with his uncle, who plans to sell off his company’s assets in order to corner the market on Swedish rubber ducks.
