Sarah, the Myth


In 1917, the legendary French actress Sarah Bernhardt visits the French soldiers on the Macedonian front in the vicinity of Bitola. On the improvised stage she performed excerpts from Hamlet, character that she, as first female has marvelously interpreted twenty years earlier in the cosmopolitan Paris. The lines of Hamlet in the terror of war attain cruel authenticity and open the eternal question - is human capable of escaping from himself.
