Winner of the Golden Bear the 2012 Berlin Film Festival, Caesar Must Die follows the inmates of the high-security Rebibbia prison as they rehearse a performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’. A fascinating encounter between theatre and reality, Shakespeare’s scenes play out in the prison cells and courtyard, as inmates let the rehearsals infiltrate their day-to-day lives. Tensions rumble to the surface as the play unearths suppressed feelings. Performed by convicted criminals, Caesar Must Die finds the common ground between Shakespeare’s play and cell life: corruption, collusion and betrayal. But above all, a film of genuine humanity and compassion is exquisitely revealed.
