Excellent Film, Timeless Story.
21 November 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Jerzy Kawalerowicz's Quo Vadis was both a compelling and evocative production. The story, based on love amidst persecution is a timeless story that was portrayed effectively thanks to the fantastic directing by Mr Kawalerowicz, the breathtaking special effects and the exceptional acting by some of Poland great actors. Although the film was 3 hours long, at no time was I bored or even afterwards, the film left me thinking about those times and the various themes conveyed in the film. This film is truely an epic and deserves to be credited as such.
