The tragic machinations of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar are given additional potency in this Golden Bear winner, a fierce fusion of real life and drama that explores how a behind-bars staging of the play impacts on the psychological make-up of an Italian prison’s inmates.
Spotting parallels with their own pasts in the characters they are playing, the jailbirds enjoy a temporary release through their brush with art.
The result is not only one of the best recent takes on the Bard, but also a highbrow cousin of sorts to The Shawshank Redemption.
