J. O.'s rating of the film Agora - Die Säulen des Himmels

Despite the heavy-handed bias against Christianity and its involvement in Alexandria during this time period, as well as overlooking the historical inaccuracies, this film is quite good. Gorgeous art direction, beautiful photography, and stellar performances. This plays like a classic sword-and-sandal from the Golden Age of cinema, except with a smarter sense of drama that goes beyond sex and violence.
