Mixing fiction and documentary, the Tavianis' film depicts the creation of a production of Julius Caesar performed by inmates from Rome’s high-security Rebibbia Prison. As in many of their works, the film’s intensity emerges from personal experience: the brothers’ father had been imprisoned for anti-fascist activities, instilling core values in his sons. In addition to finding substantive connections between Shakespeare’s play and contemporary Italian politics, the Tavianis’ third last collaboration constantly blurs the line between reality and artifice, history and contemporary life. Winner of the Golden Bear at Berlin International Film Festival.
