Madeleine Roch, Stacia de Napierkowska
Directed by Henri Andréani, Ferdinand Zecca


“We see Antony come in the glory of conquest to Egypt; we watch Cleopatra go forth to meet the subduer of her people, that she may see his face; we behold the mighty warrior, invincible in the battlefield, fall a victim to the passion of love, and we see his final surrender of country and honor when he decides to remain by the side of Cleopatra in Egypt. Caesar then sets forth to be revenged upon the lover-traitor. He overcomes the Egyptians; and in a poignant scene Antony stabs himself, paying in his life-blood for the glory of his love. Last comes the tragic end; where Cleopatra, the incomparable queen, consummates her passion also by death, holding to her breast the stinging asp, while the Romans batter at her gates and trample outside upon the body of her lover.” (source: The Bioscope)
