Most but all wars start the same
16 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

It's very unlikely that you'll ever see this tv-play (again). It was made and aired on the eve of the Gulf war and gave a perfect insight in how these "civilized" wars start. The actual {Peloponnesean) war self is not covered, just the built-up. This is about failing diplomacy, propaganda, people that misjudge situations at cost of many lives. There is no "action", just talking. The acting and direction is, as you would expect from the British, fantastic. the only "special effect" is that it literary gets darker as war becomes every more likely. If you get the chance to see this play, do it. It's probably the only chance you will get.
