Biopic of Constantine the Great, set between 293-312 AD, from his days as Tribune to his accession as Roman Emperor of Gaul under the tetrarchy system and ending with his battle against the usurper Roman Emperor Maxentius in Rome.
The screenplay itself is a Messalina mess:combining politics ,love,ambitions,crimes,persecutions of Christians (I thought they began during Nero's reign?),it may entertain you if you do not take it seriously.There's nothing "cultural" here as in Cottafavi's notorious "legioni di Cleopatra" (1960) where Linda Cristal(The queen of Egypt!) went to dance in Alexandria's taverns .
