Ophélia is a 1963 French film directed by Claude Chabrol. Its story mirrors that of Shakespeare's Hamlet.[1]

Plot[edit]

Yvan's father has recently died and his mother, Claudia, marries her husband's brother, Adrien. Yvan refuses to accept the new marriage and descends into a fantasy world where he believes that his mother and his uncle are responsible for the death of his father. Then Adrian suddenly dies and Yvan learns his uncle's true identity.
