The war that never ends: to bad you will never see it either
An exceptional work. It gives true insight into how civilized societies (nations) get into terrible messes. The acting is superior and the meanings are clear. A must see for those who seek to understand the actions of the powerful and the lost.
In my humble opinion: This is much more than a brilliant analysis of the 27-year war between Athens and Sparta that destroyed the Athenian empire. While watching this program, you can plainly see and identify our own parallel events being argued by our own leaders. I particularly could recognize the sincere as well as the disingenuous machinations of political expediency and the appropriation of moral right through the speeches and dialogue of the political and military men of that time (and ours). I thought it had truly clever style as presented in an old television theater style simulated and much like current hyped critical news programming.
I was so inspired that it was one of the reason I went back to making video. I don't think it will be released again. It's too bad because this is what good television was and could be all about.
