Charlton Heston worked very hard in "Anthony and Cleopatra" an adaptation of Shakespeare scripted by himself. Heston is the director too, and the movie is a wonderful experience of filmmaking, a true labour of love, with some fault, perhaps, but full of energetic sequences. a story of love, passion and death. Heston knows very well the Shakespeare original, and he express in the screen all the strenght , all the fascination of the shakesperian text. "Anthony and Cleopatra" was filmed in Spain , with a marvellous soundtrack and a great camera work. Heston is superb in the title role.
