Beautiful cinematography, great acting, moving story.
19 November 2001 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I love this movie! The superb story comes from the writer whose books were once described as ready made movie scripts written one hundred years too early. Finally we have a movie that does justice to this breathtaking piece of literature. All the elements of a great story of Shakespearean proportion are here: love, revenge, murder, sacrifice, insanity, along with great actors and beautiful cinematography and on top of it a wonderful, universal message of love, a message we need to hear over and over, and what a great way to deliver it. This movie not only returns a great love story to movie screens but shows impulsive, greedy and egocentric behaviour in all its repulsiveness. It is a great clear lesson in morality, no ambivalence here, cowardly bad guy Nero falls and with him the corrupt and degenerated elites of the Roman Empire. All actors are great, somebody said "too theatrical", yes, this is what acting is about. All actors show depth of the characters they play especially Petronius - Boguslaw Linda, Nero - Michal Bajor and last but not least Chilo- Jerzy Trela. Ligia (Magdalena Mielcarz, journalism student and model) and Marcus Vinicius (Pawel Delag) are simply young and full of natural beauty, Ligia is absolutely stunning in her innocent and luminescent beauty.

I love the last scene of the movie, a beautiful tribute to the tireless pilgrim and messenger of love on this planet John Paul II.

Make sure you don't miss this movie.
