Perhaps you are referring to 'Hamlet Goes Business' a Danish movie made
within the last couple of years. It is filmed entirely in black and white.
The basic structure of the play is pretty similar although it is set in the
context of a large company (construction I think) rather than a monarchy.
It is not a big budget movie to say the least and it is not in English (I
saw it with subtitles) but it is worth seeing.
