Storyline

The seductive Messalina (Betty Roland) will stop at nothing to become the most powerful woman in Rome. Gaining the attention of the Emperor Caligula (Gino Turini), she soon finds herself at loggerheads with Agrippina (Francoise Blanchard) who has successfully plotted Caligula's downfall and is maneuvering her son Nero to become next Emperor of Rome. However Messalina is one step ahead and jumps into bed with Claudius (Vladimir Brajovic). But when Messalina becomes pregnant and it's clear that Claudius isn't the father, Agrippina seizes this as her opportunity to finally see Messalina treated as a mere slut of Rome. Written by lament

I want to be a Roman Man in 420
24 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there was a possible scientific way i could travel to the past it would be in the roman times.

This is because the life expectancy was trivial and usually 25-30.

The women still had big bushes of hair on their vagina and men could walk around being rich doing what they wished watching gladiators fight and being a political snide bastard using words and power to corrupt and felicitate your enemy's while being able to get away with anything because of the lack of government control in the peoples way.

I Love USA, But i want to live in 420 B.C ^_^

Also i see this move about Caligula factually correct which means more to me then any of my dreams.
