I only get to see movies if I’m A) in Italy and see it there, B) it’s been released on DVD in Italy and I buy it from ibs.it or C) it’s been distributed in the US, and since for Cesare Deve Morire none of those things have happened, I must wait. I’ll order it when it becomes available on DVD in Italy, but lucky us in America, Adopt Films has the rights and will release it here in the states later this year.
It was filmed in a real prisons and most of the actors are actual prisoners, staging a production of Julius Caesar. It looks spectacular – the trailer almost makes me cry.
