Cinema Releases - Caesar Must Die

Caesar Must Die
On DVD and VOD now
Each year the inmates of Rome’s high security Rebibbia prison, incarcerated mostly for Mafia-related crimes, put on a play. The Taviani brothers follow the rehearsals and performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, a play where the conspiracies and betrayals echo the past and present lives of the prisoners. The actors become prisoners once again as they are accompanied back to their cells. As one of the prisoner-turned-actor remarks towards the end of the film: “Since I discovered art, this cell has become a prison."
A highly enjoyable film by the legendary directors of Padre Padrone.
