Information for the Audience: 

I, Father is based on William Shakespeares greatest tragedy, Hamlet. The movie is set within the contemporary world of the Kosovan family and much like the stage play, deals with spirituality, love, bereavement, psychosis, family, friendship, betrayal and ultimately acceptance. It is a very human story, told visually, with elements of indiginous culture thrown in by way of traditional song and dance. There are many clues in the film to its direct link to Hamlet, yet it maintains its own truth, spoken in the Albanian tongue and shirking elements of theatricality. With solid, stark performances from an ensemble cast it proves itself to be a wonderful, multilayered film that not only explores the central character's psychology but gives room for the different facets of the 'bad guy' as well as the innocent and not so innocent female characters.
