Storyline

William Shakespeare's epic tale of conspiracy, loyalty and betrayal. Rome is destroyed, their world has crumbled, but life must go on. Survival drives people in a broken world, where friendships get brutally ripped apart. Caesar leads in the only way he knows how and stands firm in the belief of his leadership. Others have different ideas and that's where this classic tale steps up and attacks. Taking reference to gang culture and questioning the very heart of loyalty and friendship this film is hard hitting. The world is Rome, the story is now, the brutality is soul destroyingly real. In a dark world you find the rawest and darkest souls when people are pushed beyond their limits. The future is not clear and opinions are as divided as the loyalty's. Written by Anonymous

An unexpected triumph
9 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A micro-budget Shakespeare adaptation made by The British Youth Film Academy, with a cast and crew nearly all still in their teens, may not sound that enticing, but this was an unexpected highlight of the 19th Raindance Film Festival in London. Not just a good film for something made by young amateurs, but a good film full stop. Shot in a derelict brewery,in noirish black and white, this is a truly cinematic film, a quality sadly lacking in most of the other British films I saw at the festival.The age of the cast, although initially disconcerting, is made a virtue by portraying the citizens of Rome as roaming gangs and there are several very good performances by the young cast.
