Factual errors: Cleopatra mentions the Octavian is not Caesar's 'flesh and blood'. Octavian was in fact, Caesar's grandnephew, the son of Caesar's niece Atia (though Caesar introduces him as simply his 'nephew', whether this is a goof or just simplification on Caesar's part is unclear)See more »
Quotes:
[On Caesarion]
Marc Antony:[to Octavian] Looks like you have competition.
Octavian:I don't think so. Caesar will never name him his heir.

cleopatra as she has lived, 4 July 2003
Author: Sabiene from Austria

I have never seen the other movies on the story of Cleopatra, only parts of them. I don't think Liz Taylor looks like an Epytian. But then I saw this Film. It's fantastic! Leonor Varela is the ideal cast. She is beautiful and human. You can always feel with her, but also see, what were her faults. Sometimes she's like a little girl, then a cold-blooded ruler, then a selfless guardian of her people, and she lives for her love. Also the colours are amazing. The cast is perfect. This film is simply the best Cleopatra-film. You can't make a better one.
