  1. A grand, old-fashioned epic, this project is every bit as important as "Gladiator" or a new "Star Wars" episode.

    Bright, glossy, grandly scaled and dramatically stolid, 79-year-old writer-director Jerzy Kawalerowicz's longtime dream project mixes earnest religiosity with the depraved cruelty of Nero's Rome in the classic De Mille tradition.
  3. Kawalerowicz directs with briskness and vigor but cannot keep the first half of his film from slipping into tedium.
  4. 50
    The film should also wow fans of Herbert Wise's "I, Claudius" and Franco Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth" alike.

    Polish QUO VADIS is a masterpiece! The actors deserve Oscars and it's a shame the movie did not get the well-desrved attention across the Atlantic... no matter, Pawel Delag convinced me he's a man in love, the girls were all beatiful and talented, Boguslaw Linda the refferee of elegance and the Greek 'Judas' was perfect... I started learning Polish words just by seeing it over and over... as I did once before when watching The Healer... Unfortunately, we don't see many Polish movies... from whatever Polish I can understand, I saw Pawel Delag dancing on stage, perhaps he sings as well, a man of theatre playing in musicals and making such a great part in QV, playing the Roman who turns into a Christian... charming, gifted and versatile he has all an artist could dream of, blessings be upon thee.
