Storyline

After General Flavius Aetius frees the Roman Empire from the clutches of Attila the Hun, Rome is once again secure. However, this assurance is short-lived, as Attila is no longer a threat, it only brings the Germanic tribes to once again unite against Rome. As the growing power of General Flavius Aetius becomes a threat to the Roman Senate, and the Emperor of Rome, Flavius becomes a victim of assassination to the Roman political hierarchy, which leaves Rome to two decades of corruption and turmoil. This unrest causes an intense decline in its infrastructure, finally brings the Empire to its inevitable demise. Leaving the Barbarians to finally fulfill their 400 years old dream, to destroy Rome once and for all. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

One of the sequences that took the longest to edit (two years), was the 451 A.D. Victory over Attila speech and celebrations sequence in Rome. In that sequence we see the plot to murder General Flavius Aëtius unfold. There are hidden signals, messages, and eye contacts between the Caesar Valentinian III (played by Igor Galo), and Senator Flavius Magnus (played by Piotr Gzowski). Eventhough they are both in this one scene, Igor Galo and Piotr Gzowski never actually met each other in real life, nor did the other argumentative Senator arguing with Magnus.

This entire sequence continues later with all kinds of imagery, representing the Roman crowds and the Roman way of life. From all kinds of actors, other then Legionnaires and Senators, there are also various street performers, Gypsy fire dancers, drummers, Sweedish tables full of every possible food, performers playing with whips on fire, as well as sword fights lit on fire, orgies, carpenters, tricks with fire swallowing and explosions, magicians, monkeys, lions, tigers, elephants, and every possible element that felt closest to a legitimate Roman Antiquity celebration. While at the same time, trying to take you as the audience, directly into the streets of 451 A.D. Rome, while experiencing that life at the moment, through a collage combination of images, sounds and music. This entire experiment to try to achieve this experience took two long years of scouting, searching, and shooting all kinds of material that was later edited together, and experimented with in various ways, to make it work in a certain dreamy ethereal way.

All these shots and scenes with different actors were shot on two different continents, in three different countries, in a period of two years. The sequences with Senator Magnus (Piotr Gzowski), Senaator Avitus (Patrick Wolfe), Senator Decimus (Greg Gibson), and Senator Scipio (Robert Johnson) were all shot in USA, between August and October 2010, and all the sequences with Caesar Valentinian III (Igor Galo) were shot between August and September 2011 in Croatia. While the argumentative Senator arguing with Senator Magnus, while giving him a Roman hand flip, was an Italian comedic actor shot in Rome, Italy in May 2012. See more »

This is a big story that brings the audience in quickly and purposefully.
16 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ivan did an excellent job bringing this big story to life with great attention to detail and setting. The story is easy to follow and draws the audience in quickly. Though this is not a high budget film, it came across as a very professionally created film. The costumes and setting brought an important authenticity to the production, making it simple for the viewers to connect with the story. The film was shot on location in Europe, as well as in the US, which helps to set the intended tone for the movie. The action continues at a steady pace and the story builds strongly along the way. Ivan is a very talented film director, writer and actor. I look forward to seeing the next part of this film when it comes out.
