Ralph Fiennes' production of Shakespeare's Coriolanus is just about perfect.
This is a hard, cruel play about men of war and about how war shapes individual men and whole cultures. This version sets the play in modern dress in an Eastern European theatre with ruined apartment buildings and damaged villages. This does real justice to Shakespeare's themes by showing us what the world looks like and feels like to a hardened general like Coriolanus; men fight with knives and machine guns, not glorious swords that can distract us with their glamour. There is no glamour here.
Gerard Butler is perfect as the Enemy Leader,Coriolanus' equal and opponent. Vanessa Redgrave as Volumnia shows all the best of the British acting traditions. Fiennes himself seems simply to be this military man, hard-as-nails, passionate if not profound in his thoughts and feelings.
Coriolanus has never been one of Shakespaere's greatest hits, but it is one of his best and truest. In it, he shared some of his darker thoughts about humanity and the true nature of heroism.

Now i can't stress enough how much i love this movie i've never seen any plays or read
anything about Shakespeare so i will not say if it's accurate or not.but bear with me now i do know
that Ralph Fiennes did an excellent job of this after seeing this i did went and read up on the play.
and wow was i empress at how good this is.Vanessa Redgrave was a force in the movie as his mother who
had more anger than love for her son but i guess when your son want to kill everyone i think there will be anger.
sometimes it's hard to get your point across when everyone is talking and vice versa.there's a lot of people who
will not see this piece of a gem of a movie because of it's bloody curtly.

Purchased as a Christmas present, this film languished on the shelf until that night when there was no other choice than Shakespeare! What a surprise!
Crisp, fast, violent, modern.....filled with crazed warriors, mendacious politicians, controlling mothers, paparazzi and fickle citizens.I was unprepared for the clean clear story-telling . Even the backdrop of war-torn Serbia was perfect .
A great production of a 'difficult' play, a subtle excavation of some very troubling human characteristics.

Format: DVD

This is a film adaptation of William Shakespeare's (1564 to 1616) play of the same name, written circa 1608. (The play itself was written during Shakespeare's greatest period, 1599 to 1608). This movie is also the directorial debut of actor Ralph Fiennes (who also co-produced).

Even though this movie is based on a "Roman" or "political" play, serious viewers will discover that it so much more. I found that it stayed with me long after I saw it.

This movie is set in a modern day version of Rome. It is essentially the story of warrior Caius Marcius (note that his last name is derived from the Roman god of war), later Caius Marcius Coriolanus, whose honour, pride, and sense of social rank essentially dominates his life and interferes with his ability to function effectively when he's not on the battlefield.

One of the great attributes of this movie and the play is that it does not have many characters and thus is easy to follow. The major characters are as follows:

(1) Caius Marcius Coriolanus (Ralph Fiennes): a valiant warrior and patrician (nobleman) with a non-overbearing wife. "A soldier to Cato's wish" and a modest hero who "hath deserved worthily of his country" but who lacks tact and refuses to placate "the mutable, rank-scented many."
(2) Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave): his overbearing mother. "In anger, Juno-like."
(3) Menenius Agrippa (Brian Cox): "a humorous patrician" and an old and true friend of Coriolanus who is trusted by the plebeians (lower class).
(4) Comenius (John Kani): a fellow general of Coriolanus.
(5) Sicinius (James Nesbitt) and Brutus (Paul Jesson): tribunes or representatives of the common people or plebians and Coriolanus' political enemies. "A pair of strange ones.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 11 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Politicians and/or military generals get in trouble for all sorts of reasons -- corruption, sex scandals, treachery, being a crack addict, etc.

But you don't often hear about them getting in trouble for being brutally honest about what they think... partly because it never happens. Yet this is what happens in "Coriolanus," a gritty grey adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tragedy of a great but deeply flawed military man, with an all-around amazing all-star cast including Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler and Vanessa Redgrave.

While the original play was set in ancient Rome, this takes place on a modern Rome-that-might-have-been -- a Roman Republic with guns and bombs and cars. And no, it's not set in another country that is just referred to as Rome. One scene has Coriolanus lecturing his troops... who are standing in front of a wall covered in graffiti IN LATIN. This is meant to be a modern version of Rome.

Roman general Caius Martius (Fiennes) is leading a war against the Volscians, led by his counterpart Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler). After Martius wins a decisive victory against Aufidius, and gains the city of Corioles for Rome, he's welcomed back as a hero and given the official name of "Coriolanus." His glory-hungry mother (Redgrave) encourages him to strike while the iron is hot, and run for consul.

Here's the problem: Coriolanus has a lot of contempt for the common people, and when his political enemies Brutus (Paul Jesson) and Sicinius (a scarily gimlet-eyed James Nesbitt) arrange for the crowds to be filled with... well, the sort of gullible idiots you're confronted with at every election.
