5.0 out of 5 stars Brush up Your Shakespere..., 17 Jun 2012
This review is from: Coriolanus [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When offered the chance to review this DVD on behalf of Amazon Vine I was very interested. Coriolanus is a play by Shakespere that I am unfamiliar with and I imagine I am not in the minority of the rest of the country on this.
Many of us know the plots to Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar and think we know the plot to Hamlet but this is unfamiliar territory.
If we couple this with the plays modern setting- Rome but with a distinctly `Balkan type Conflict' feel together with some really top notch actors then the attraction is strong.
Is it any good?

The resounding answer is YES.
Ralph Fiennes as the lead role Caius Martius is simply wonderful and he is ably supported by an excellent cast including the marvellous Vanessa Redgrave who plays Caius' mother Volumnia.
These two characters or rather their relationships that the character's bring out is a real joy of the play.
Recommended.
