Did You Know?
One line states that Coriolanus, played by Ralph Fiennes, "has grown from man to dragon." In the film
Red Dragon, Fiennes' character wished to become a dragon.
Caius Martius Coriolanus:
I'll fight with none but thee, for I do hate thee.
We hate alike.
Look out Kenneth Branagh
This is my first review on IMDb so bare with me. Coriolanus has the
right ingredients for a good movie, great story(can you top
Shakespeare?) and a strong cast.Only thing that was unknown so far is
the director.IMO Mr. Fiennes did very well in his debut, his camera
moves around at eyes height and often lingers close up to actors
faces(it keeps the film from being stagy and lets you see all the
nuances they convey).Locations are interesting and there are couple of
nice fight scenes.The language is Shakespirian but i had no problems
understanding it( not my native lang.), musical score is kinda tribal
and quite appropriate for the theme of the film. It's a very dark movie
and it gets a bit bloody sometime so if you're not into that be warned.
My vote is 8/10 i recommend it to everyone and hope to see more of Mr.
Fiennes work behind the camera. P.S. Look out Ken Branagh you've got
some competition now 🙂
