admirable
21 July 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A splendid film, reminding a Latin text. Not for the use of language but for the admirable precise simplicity. A film about birth of Rome. The story is familiar, at the first sigh, from school years. In fact, a profound inspired history of Rome. Level by level, event by event. Because it is a film about brotherhood and murder, about "the others", about gods and atheism, about power, love, sacrifice, weakness in force , about relations and, sure, about the death as seed for a great project. A film who you feel. And it is enough.
