Described by its idiosyncratic Finnish director as a 'black-and-white underground B-movie classical drama', this bizarre version of Shakespeare's Scandinavian opus is set in the 20th century, and alongside Kaurismaki's customary offbeat humour contains references to rockabilly, comic books and the world trade in rubber ducks.
