To Be or Not To Be is a classic comedy about a theatrical troupe fighting the Nazis following the invasion of Poland in 1939. Egocentric leading man Joseph Tura suspects his wife Maria of having a secret admirer - the man who always walks out when Joseph begins performing Hamlet's famous soliloquy beginning "To be or not to be..."; but their differences are swept aside when the Nazis march in and a traitor is uncovered in the shape of the charming Professor Siletsky. Will Joseph succeed in his masquerade as the infamous Colonel Ehrhardt? Will his company escape to England? Finding laughter in the midst of terrible and tragic circumstances, To Be Or Not To Be is one of Ernst Lubitsch's greatest films, and must be seen to be appreciated.
