"Caesar Must Die"
Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's "Caesar Must Die," winner of the Berlin Golden Bear and screening at the upcoming New York Film Festival, is Italy's official submission to the Best Foreign-Language Oscar race. The hard-hitting docudrama was shot in Rome's maximum-security Rebibbia prison, where the inmates perform Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" while behind bars. Trailer below.

Italy's last Foreign-Language Oscar win was 1999's "Life Is Beautiful," received by an ecstatic, chair-jumping Roberto Benigni.
