Storyline

After the lewd and frenetic Dance of the Seven Veils and with the solemn pledge from the very lips of Herod himself that she could have whatever her heart desires up to half his kingdom, wanton and proud young Salomé comes before her King with a frenzied and unreasonable demand. Beguiled by John the Baptist and then scorned for the sake of his God, the lascivious Salomé encouraged by her mother, the vindictive Herodias, commands that John be executed and his head delivered on a silver platter. And so, the King agrees. Written by Nick Riganas

Deeply Moving and Brave Interpretation of a Classic Tale
24 May 2015 | by Vils1See all my reviews

I could not believe that there was only one review of this great film. It was released on DVD together with the documentary 'Wilde Salomé'. A great double package explaining the background, the journey and the making of to good effect. I watched Wilde Salomé first, which I think helped before seeing the 'main course'.

The overall effect was deeply moving - covering the whole range of emotions. I can't say too much more without it being a spoiler.

Some will struggle with the theatrical presentation and modern clothes. However don't let that put you off as the acting and the message are top notch.

It still moves me months later - the sign of a good film.

Highly recommended - when you are in the mood.
