One of the finest movies about Cleopatra, 6 September 2002
Author: Robert Priewasser ( from Vienna, Austria

Caesar and Cleopatra is definitely one of the finest movies on the theme. Both the author (G. B. Shaw) and the actors guarantee for a funny but nevertheless high levelled movie. It is one of those delicate BBC-productions of the 70s like "I, Claudius, Caesar and God" (with Derek Jacobi) which do not need action scenes like Ridley Scotts "Gladiator" instead of a good and historical correct story. It is really a pity, that this film is not available on DVD (even not on VHS!).
