Trivia

The production design of Rome in this episode was very specific; everywhere except the Senate was to be small and cramped. The idea behind this design choice was to reflect Coriolanus' mindset. He dislikes the notion of the people gathering together for anything, and on such a cramped set, because the alleys and streets are so small, it only takes a few people to make them look dangerously crowded.

Very positively suprised
7 December 2019 | by AngelofMusic1998See all my reviews

Coriolanus is not among my favorite Shakespeare plays,nor is it among the most popular either.The title role isn't the easiest character to love.Sets and costumes are allright,they could have been better,but they do not look cheap.Acting is very good,especially from Coriolanus and his mother.Overall,very good.I was positively suprised by this TV movie,considering that I am not a big fan of Coriolanus.8/10
