Brandauer unconvincing as Nero
29 July 2006 | by (Rotterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The most positive element of this miniseries-version of 'Quo Vadis' is it lacks the bombastic tone or settings usually connected with this type of genre. Many may consider the direction by Franco Rossi as slow, but to me it's rather very comfortable in comparison to the fast cutting-virus the historical pieces are handicapped by nowadays, as shown in movies like 'Troy'. It's a relief the makers make time to unfold Sienkiewicz novel and let us become involved in the story and focus on the downfall of decadent Rome and rising of humanity.

Unfortunately, there are some serious drawbacks to this version on other areas. Prepare yourself for mostly irritating synchronized dialog, where the voices of the actors are spoken by others. I believe Max Von Sydow (who gives us a great and moving performance as Peter) was one of the few who was allowed to keep his voice for his part. The greatest disappointment is however the role of Nero, played by Klaus Maria Brandauer. He has not any resemblance with the real Nero, who was fat and had a overall brutal appearance. Brandauer's characterization of Nero is over the top, his boredom with everything and everyone becomes irritating to the point you want him to die in the flames of Rome fast. And we have seen this view of the unpredictable, cruel, and bored Roman emperor many times before. We feel no compassion for Brandauers Nero when he loses the love of everyone around him, even that of Popea, played by the beautiful Christina Raines.

For photography, story-telling and Max Von Sydow, you may enjoy this movie.
