Quo Vadis? review
28 June 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

A lavish spectacle by pre-WW1 standards, Enrico Guazzoni's Quo Vadis tell its story at speed, which means that only scant attention is paid to characterisation, and the intertitles mostly explain what is to follow rather than enhance the action taking place on the screen. It's primitive by modern standards, but Quo Vadis does draw you in and has an important place in the history of cinema.
