Caesar Must Die (2012)

Directed by: Paolo and Vittorio Taviani
Country: Italy

Plot: Inmates at a high-security prison in Rome prepare for a public performance.
Review: Lately, the Italian cinema is in needing of inspiration, but fortunately, Taviani brothers are still active to fill our hearts with hope. Originality and simplicity was always a constant in their works and in the good and bad, they are to praise for having such a different approach. This time the idea was to join some inmates from a high-security prison and put them to rehearse a Shakespeare’s play, introducing it to the outside world. Even without achieving great dramatic expression, the movie succeeds in two ways: Honoring the art of theatre and give to these men the chance of dreaming with a better future by exploring their artistic capabilities. An unmatched play!
Relevant awards: Golden Berlin Bear in competition.
