A romanced story of Attila the Hun, from when he lost his parents in childhood until his death.

In the party/orgy scene where Aetius is showing off Rome to Attila, we see a woman with her back to use reveal herself to a man and woman. Despite her veil, we can clearly see her thong underwear. See more »
My daughter married to a barbarian? She'd be the laughingstock of Rome.
I doubt it. At least there'd be a Rome to do the laughing.

A Romanced Story of Attila the Hun in a Great Epic
"Attila" is a romanced story of Attila the Hun (Gerard Butler), since his childhood, when he lost his parents until his death. The screenplay shows his respect to the great Roman strategist Flavius Aetius (Powers Boothe, with his usual face of 'bad guy'), his loves, the gossips, intrigues and betrayals in Rome, all of these evolved by magic and mysticism. Attila certainly was one of the most evil man along the story, but the screenplay shows him as a great leader, strategist and lover. If you decide to forget the story and attain to the plot itself, you will see and enjoy a great epic movie. The underrated Gerard Butler has another magnificent performance. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Atila, o Huno" ("Attila, the Hun")
