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 »

Quotes

[of Caesar]
Marcus Brutus: He spared my life.
Caius Cassius: And took the life of Cato, your wife's father who treated you like a son... Has Portia ceased her mourning?
Marcus Brutus: No... and neither have I.
Caius Cassius: So, you're mourning over Cato's death?
Marcus Brutus: Cassius, yes, I and grieving... but private affections and public duty are not the same thing.
Caius Cassius: And yet they say that in your grief that you just weep and say prayers... and fill your wife's drinking cup and go to bed... And when Caesar comes to you tonight, you'll be like his boy, filling his ...

The story of the politician, general and private man, Julius Caesar.
29 December 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Julius Caesar is another mini series by the DeAngelis Group. Like some of their other Producions one sees a few well know actors, such as Richard Harris and Christopher Walken , as well as some local actors of Germany and Italy(Heino Ferch, Tobias Moretti).

The picture itself, even not indepth to the real Caesar story, gives an nice picture of the times of the roman empire. Nice acting, as well as a well combined cast, give a nice viewing pleasure.

Jeremy Sisto gives a new angel to a few on Caesar,Chris Noth (Sex & the City) gives a very good performance and Harris plays a Sulla, which you enjoy dying.

All in all, the about 3 hour mini series is a nice evening view for the family, bringing love, war/action as well as history into your living room.
