    Beautiful, compelling and creative interpretation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. The story is told in a straightforward way and we can sense the real emotions that overflow from the real prisoners who play the characters. All the strength of Shakespeare’s story is present in this film. The imagery is beautiful and the dialogues were carefully selected.

    Not surprisingly, prison must be the perfect incubator of sadness and anger, because every one of the “performances” is astonishingly vivid. At the extremes of the emotional spectrum, at least, these guys are brilliant.

    The most powerful thing about the film is the "audition" scene at the beginning in which the prisoners have to introduce themselves in two ways: sorrowingly, and then angrily. It is a brilliant sequence, and the rest of the film doesn't quite match it.

    At 76 minutes, Caesar Must Die is more of an art piece than a thick steak of a feature film, but it maintains a fascinating hum from start to finish.
