A tale of the Roman Empire's rise and fall
14 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This 3½ hour walk through the Roman Empire is surprisingly good. The storyline is kept interesting by shifting between narating events as they unfold, letting experts with special knowledge tell little interesting tidbits, and having actors put voices to the writings and stories left behind for later generations to find - thus shaping the characters and plotting the events - all adding to make the 1st century come to life once again.

I cannot tell whether this documentary is accurate in all aspects, but it tells an interesting and emotionally rich story of the Roman Empire. I liked it.
