Quotes

Socrate: All the words I speak to you now spring spontaneously to my lips and there are no others I could say. I can feel them singing inside me like the sound of a flute and they are like Corybantes in their delirium, possessed by a celestial melody.

Rolling over in his grave
21 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Boy is this film bad. It consists of talking heads going back and forth, talking about people we haven't met or even know about. It's all Greek to me, but it's Italian, and for a goodly portion of the film it looks like it's been dubbed, which it hasn't. I guess the track is off kilter.

The language itself is pure modern, with almost no hints of the true nature of Greek speech in 400 BC. And none of the beauty of Socrates speeches.

It was so bad I didn't see it through to the end. So maybe it got a lot better after the first 30 minutes.
