Ophelia is a 1963 French film directed by Claude Chabrol. Its story mirrors that of Shakespeare's Hamlet.


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.
