Titus, possessed of excellent acting, superb scenery, enhancing score, and an age-old Shakespearean tale with plots and twists, galore, is a must-see for any serious cinemaphile. Of course, it is literate, convincing, easy to follow even in Shakespearean English, and provides visual, emotional, spiritual, and ethical issues for all to experience and ponder. It`s admixture of the ancient and the modern in its sets and scenery added to its relevance and enjoyment. What a treat--for the eye, the ear, the brain, and the heart. I`m recommending it to my film-scorer son!
This movies gave an old story a new lease of life, truely fantastic, and thats coming from a 20 year old, normally bored to tears by the overbearing performances common to shakespearian plays/movies.
