Time Out Chicago

The problem with the film, which somewhat inexplicably won the Golden Bear at Berlin last year, is that it scarcely transcends the basic novelty of its premise.

You can only guess what the lines mean to the inmates, who register as atmospheric blanks at best and brutal exotics at worst, even if the tale that they enact with such earnest vigor works because the original tragedy does.

It is uncanny how Italy's film-makers keep failing to nail, or effectively to satirise, their country's strident political shortcomings.

The film gets on screen not only the play's bloody, double-dealing, hungry essence, but the redemptive potential of art.

The juxtaposition of Shakespearean text and prison cell life is a particularly poignant one.

What Culture

A clever meta-narrative achievement that boasts winningly naturalistic performances from the real inmates and doesn't outstay its welcome.

In just 76 minutes, the Taviani brothers treat us to a deeply affecting adaptation of this ancient play, embedded with even deeper meaning on account of its unconventional stars.

Shakespeare's tragedy gains extra piquancy in a Roman prison.

As they find issues and themes they can relate to, the action is never remotely static despite the frequent nature of the close-ups and the plastic sword.

The List

The 'play-within-the-film' concept keeps the audience held slightly at arms length, but in many of the more intense scenes it's hard not to be sucked in, at least until the real world interrupts again.

What works best is what's readily accessible, the startling power of performers who understand the drama all too well.

A double hybrid that occupies a space somewhere between documentary and fiction right along the border of cinema and theater.

The Taviani brothers, Paolo and Vittorio, have been blurring the line between reality and fiction in their films for six decades.

The movie's predominant black-and-white palette pares the action to its starkest outlines, and a few color sequences reconnect the prison, and the prisoners, to the surrounding world.
