Emperor Caligula has gone mad. After murdering his sister's husband, he sends her into exile and adopts her son Lucius to raise as his own. Guided by Caligula's cruelty, the boy soon becomes a man with his own legacy: the infamous Nero, whose rule is haunted by bloodlust, deception and vengeance. Seizing power with a counterfeit will, the paranoid Emperor Nero battles perceived enemies at every turn. No one, not even his own mother, is safe from his reign of terror. As he spirals deeper into a vicious cycle of loneliness, betrayal and murder, Nero becomes Rome's worst nightmare.

While Rome Burnt and Nero Fiddled, I Struggled to Keep Awake - Nero review by CV

Spoiler Alert

This film is just over three hours long and you feel it. The story of Nero is presented as a Greek tragedy, his hubris being his allegiance to a slave-girl romance in tension with his desire to change the world for good by seizing power. The film relies too much on the romance, which all looks too modern in style, and the dialogue is ever soporifically banal. There is one character, a veteran senator, who attempts profundity with lines such as "All liars believe what they say - until they've said it." That's as good as it gets.
