Set in Rebibbia Prison in Italy, this film follows the auditioning of prisoners, many of whom are lifers and serious criminals, and the final performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. As rehearsals progress, the prisoners come to see the relevance of the play’s themes to their own lives and attain some sense of the fulfilment and hope that artistic expression can bring. The film won the Golden Bear Award at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.
