In a dystopian version of the Roman Empire, set somewhere between the
movie Metropolis and 1940s Italy, Marc Antony (Christopher
Lee-Power) finds the dead body of Julius Caesar (Frank Nance). But when he
sets out to chase the killer (Andrew Nance), he finds himself hunted
instead - which eventually leads to a larger scale of revenge ...
around Marc Antony's famous "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me
your ears"-dialogue from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
that builds the framework for this story, Nick Molloy has managed to
create a quite gripping short thriller that relies not so much on the
lines by the bard but the underlying action - that is not actually in the
play mind you but together with the monologue builds a gripping whole,
helped by an eccentric aesthetic approach, well-directed action, and
Totally worth a watch, no matter whether you're
into Shakespeare or not.
