CALIGULA, an attractive prince, upon the death of his sister and mistress, tries, through murder and the systematic perversion of all values, to practice a liberty that he will eventually discover not to be the right one. THE MISUNDERSTANDING is about a son who expects to be recognized without having to declare his name and who is killed by his mother and his sister as the result of the misunderstanding. STATE OF SIEGE is an allegorical drama about liberty. THE JUST ASSASSINS is base on historical events in Moscow after WII.
