Audience Reviews for Augustus
The political machinations and intrigues rampant during Roman times continue to fascinate me. With the exception of Charlotte Rampling, the film itself is mediocre. This depiction cries for further exploration of this fascinating time period.
An excellent retelling of the life of Augustus, if a bit on an encomium . . . with Peter O'Toole as the emperor himself. Owned on DVD.
One of the best movies based on history of Rome. Peter O'Toole, as Augustus - the first emperor of Rome, has given brilliant performance. Majority of the movie is in flash back and opens with Augustus lying of death bed when his exiled daughter comes to pay her last respect to dying father and emperor and he asks "How did I fare in comedy of life?" and she replies, "The Gods will tell you father".
Most memorable scene in the movie.
