Goofs

In the scene where Calpurnia goes to Brutus's wife, Portia to tell her how glad she is that Brutus is with Caeser that day, Portia drops the goblet she is holding,and it breaks. Then we see Calpurnia's face, and then back to the floor where they both bend down to pick up the whole cup, not the pieces. Also this goblet would have likely been gold, and therefore not have broken at all. See more »

Aurelia: They are not our people.
Cousin: You wish to join with farmers and hagglers and beggars?

History
2 January 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

My comments are mainly about the already existing comments which are nonsensical. Firstly, someone writes that it is a goof that Caesar claims to be a descendant of Venus, and that Venus is the Greek name, whereas the roman is Aphrodite. THAT is not the case: Venus is the roman name, and Aphrodite the Greek. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of mythology can tell you that.One should not write what one does not know about.

Secondly, there is a grave error in the summary: Brutus is NOT the nephew of Caesar but of Cato. Caesar had a very famous grand nephew named Gaius Octavian, aka Emperor Augustus, who is not depicted in the film but mentioned in the end credits.

I think it is OK for TV movie, but like most Roman films the "liberties" with historical facts annoys me. Still, it is far more correct than most of its ilk. A bit rushed at times, but fairly entertaining if you're into roman history.
