Quotes

Socrate: Life is worth living if one hopes one day to find the truth. And the truth, like the stars, is very hard to reach. From the plains as well as from the mountaintops we observe the stars without feeling that we have come any closer to them. The same goes for the truth. It is not necessary to get close to it to recognize it.

17 August 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is an useful film. for know. for remind. for search. because Rosselini gives more than a good biopic but a correct portrait of the life of Athenes, in its different aspects , the end of Peloponeses war consequences, portraits of the lead people around Socrates, a convincing Xantipa, , the essence of Dialogues by Plato, the atmosphere , the trial . sure, Jean Sylvere is the most inspired choice for meet Socrates because he has the admirable gift to inspire to the public the feeling of time trip. he is, in many scenes, with admirable grace, Socrates, the expected Socrates for the readers of Plato. the film has , in same measure, another virtue - it is a fundamental lesson for understand the present. not surprise, off course. but for a public for who the Old Greek is only history, for who Internet is more important than the book, this film could be a significant introduction to discover the reality out of appearances.
