Product description

Product Description

Charlton Heston and Rex Harrison portray two of the Renaissance's most colourful figures in this historical drama based on Irving Stone's best-seller. When Pope Julius II (Harrison) commissions Michelangelo (Heston) to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the artist initially refuses. The Project becomes a battle of wills fuelled by artistic and temperamental differences that form the core of this movie. Nominated for five Oscars®, The Agony and the Ecstasy is a rich dramatisation of the struggle behind one of the world's artistic masterpieces. It is a story--and a film--that is both moving and fascinating.

From Amazon.co.uk

Carol Reed (The Third Man) directed this 1965 portrait of the relationship between Michelangelo (Charlton Heston) and Pope Julius II (Rex Harrison), who commissioned the artist to paint the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Based on a novel by Irving Stone, the script of The Agony and the Ecstasy plods along, juggling the dynamics between the two men along with a somewhat perfunctory love story and distracting battle sequences. Reed seems more attuned to the nuances and great pains of the artistic process, as seen in sequences of Michelangelo working. But the overall focus of the film is unfortunately fuzzy. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
