Winner of the prestigious Golden Bear at Berlin Film Festival 2012.
Set in one of Romes maximum-security prisons, this tense film from renowned filmmaking duo the Taviani brothers, documents the prisoners production of Julius Caesar. The directors brilliantly blend documentary and drama by using real prison inmates and draws subtle parallels between Shakespeares text and the contemporary world.
Humane, intelligent and affecting.
Severe and striking.
