a great movie for discovering
28 September 2001 | by (madrid. spain) – See all my reviews

Charlton Heston worked very hard in "Anthony and Cleopatra" an adaptation of Shakespeare scripted by himself . Heston is the director too, and the movie is a wonderful experience of filmmaking, a true labour of love, with some fault, perhaps, but full of energetic sequences . a story of love, passion and death . Heston knows very well the Shakespeare original, and he express in the screen all the strenght , all the fascination of the shakesperian text . "Anthony and Cleopatra" was filmed in Spain , with a marvellous soundtrack and a great camera work . Heston is superb in the title role.
