General analysis: L'Embrumé

Paradoxically, making a detective story out of Hamlet has implied not creating more puzzles but rather solving all the play’s unresolved enigmas, thus going against the play’s ethos of ambiguity. L’Embrumé explains and elucidates, unveils and makes explicit, somehow inducing the feeling of watching an anti-Hamlet, or rather a photographic negative of Hamlet, with all the “hidden” scenes revealed.
