Marcantonio e Cleopatra
Italy, 1913

Ida Carloni Talli, Bruto Castellani, Matilde Di Marzio
Directed by Enrico Guazzoni


“Superb scenes are the fall of Alexandria before Octavius; his triumphant entry afterwards at Rome; the landing of Roman troops in Egypt by moonlight, the long and silent march to Alexandria; the Alexandrian pageants in which Antony and Cleopatra participated, and the great interior scene in the royal palace on the night that was to be forever remembered. What terrific battle scenes are shown on the lofty flight of steps leading up to the royal palace entrance, and on the Nile within the city. ?Signora Gonzal­es is graceful and possesses a beautiful and expressive face. Her acting at all times shows keen intelligence and a fine grasp of the situation in hand. The death scene, which is admirably done, is stately and affecting.” (source: The Moving Picture World)
