The first movie of the weekend seen with the kids

Hello,

The kids came over for the weekend and I wanted to take the opportunity to show them at least one cult film out of the 2 evenings available.

Gladiator-maximus 2000.jpg
Gladiator (2000)

I chose to start with Ridley Scott's Gladiator, a film that is already 22 years old!

We watched it on Netflix, in a short version of 2h35. The soundtrack was unfortunately not the best. I have the long version on dvd, but we didn't want it to last too long either.
My husband is apparently not a big fan of this film, which he finds too "Girly Style", especially but not only because of the moments when Maximus strokes the wheat fields.
Personally, I also like the famous music of this film, composed by the well-known Hans Zimmer.

For those who don't know the synopsis:
In the year 180 AD, Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) is a Roman general in the armies of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris RIP 25 October 2002).
It is thanks to Maximus that the Romans have defeated the Marcomans, a Germanic tribe. Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the son of Marcus Aurelius, arrives after the victory.
The emperor knew that he would soon die and confided to Maximus that he wished to pass on power to him rather than to his son. When Marcus Aurelius tells his son, the power-hungry son does not hesitate to kill him.
Maximus, suspecting Commodus of having committed parricide, must be executed since he refuses to submit to the new emperor. He manages to get rid of the executors and quickly returns to his land and family. Of course, he arrived too late, his wife and son have been burned and hanged.
Lost and exhausted, he is taken in by a caravan of slave traders, several of them are destined to become gladiators....
He will be nicknamed the Spaniard, because of his origins, until he is forced to reveal his identity to the Emperor Commodus in Rome.
To avenge Marcus Aurelius, to protect Commodus' sister and nephew, but also to bring justice to his family, Maximus will not give up and will fight until the end to bring Commodus out of power.

So, what about you? What's your thoughts about this film? Do you also consider, like Ithara, that it's more for women? Do you like the Peplum genre in general?

See you soon for the article on the second film seen with the children,

Isiksen,
