(ANSA) - Rome, September 26 - 'Cesare Deve Morire' (Caesar
Must Die), an unusual true-life staging of Shakespeare's Julius
Caesar in a Rome high-security prison, has been picked as
Italy's candidate for the 2013 best foreign film Oscar.
The movie, by the veteran Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo
and Vittorio Taviani, is a stark but sometimes humorous study of
mafiosi getting to grips with the Bard.
It won the Golden Bear at this year's Berlin Film Festival.
Filmed largely in black-and-white, it has been described as
a "deeply humanist film" that "blends gentle humour with an
emotional punch".
In a 40-year career the Tavianis have gained critical
acclaim with films like Padrone Padrone (Father And Master),
which won a clutch of Italian awards in 1977, and La Notte di
San Lorenzo (The Night of St Lawrence), which claimed second
prize at Cannes in 1982.
