The film "Coriolanus" is a tragic film adapted from the plays of the British playwright William Shakespeare in his later years. The story tells the tragic fate of Marcius (Coriolanus), the hero of the Roman Republic, who was expelled from Rome by the Roman public because of his suspicious personality and bad temper. The film mainly reveals the frailty of human nature and the relationship between the hero and the masses
In the movie, there is a sharp conflict between the nobles and commoners in Rome, and the famine worsens the relationship between nobles and commoners. Caius Marcius, as a representative of the nobility, often had contempt for the common people, so when the common people rioted, he became the main target. At the same time, the national conflicts between the Volsians and Rome were slowly intensifying. In a battle, Caius' heroic performance won him the title of "Coriolanus". Eventually, the nobles urged Caius to seek the post of governor, which he reluctantly agreed to. Although Caius was very humble in public, his contempt for the populace could not be concealed, so the populace opposed his election and expelled him from Rome. For revenge, Caius joined forces with the Volsians and his former enemy Thales Aufidis to attack Rome, but he died in the hands of the angry Volsians in the end.
The whole film takes the political struggle during the Roman Republic as the main line, and publicizes all aspects of the complex social life in Britain during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. This movie reveals the contradictions between those in power and the common people, the weakness of human nature, and the loneliness and sorrow of heroes. It is a good movie worth watching.
