This film is called" Caeser Must Die"

Caesar Must Die (12A) S

Dir: Paolo Taviani/Vittorio Taviani76 mins, 2012, Italy, Subtitled Fri 1 - Thu 14 March
Each year the inmates of Rome's high security Rebibbia prison, where many of the men are incarcerated for Mafia-related crimes, put on a play. In this understated docu-drama the Taviani brothers (who deservedly won the top prize at last year's Berlinale) follow preparations for a performance of Julius Caesar, a play whose themes of conspiracy, rivalry, betrayal and loyalty echo the lives of the prisoners. Their grim lives and compelling personalities give a surprising, distinctive slant to Shakespeare's great play, making for a riveting experience. As one of the prisoner-turned-actors comments, art can be a burden: 'Since I discovered art, this cell has become a prison.'
