Cesare deve morire aka Caesar must die (2012)

Taviani brothers direct an alternative project, far away from the mainstream cinema. They find some prisoners for serious crimes as homicide, organized crime and drug trafficking at an Italian jail and help them understand more about art. Together they prepare a special public performance of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar. Most of the participants are finding a small opportunity on this project to forget their own problems and try to give their best in order to have a successful workshop. It is an interesting idea fulfilled with human feelings as people from different backgrounds who led them to the underworld, understand the meaning of the art and the work of a great classical author, as Shakespeare was. This film won the 2012 Golden Berlin Bear winner. Salvatore Striano's performance as Bruto is just brilliant and this man actually started working as an actor after his release.
