Caesar Must Die

Cesare deve morire

Trailer
Directed by Paolo Taviani, Vittorio Taviani
Italy, 2012
Drama
      Italian
      English

Synopsis

The performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar comes to an end and the performers are rewarded with rapturous applause. The lights go out; each one of the actors leaves the stage and returns to their cells. They are all inmates of the Roman maximum security prison Rebibbia.

Our take

Part documentary, part ode to the power of art, and perhaps the most unconventional Shakespeare adaptation ever made, the Taviani brothers’ exquisite Caeser Must Die won the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
