History of the World, Part I 1981 92 R 2.5 out of 5 ducks
A rather amusing film, end to end, presented as a history lesson. We watch as man evolves from the dawn of time, create art and art critics, and so forth. Moses brings the 15, er, 10 Commandments to the people. We look at Rome, the fountainhead of culture, including jousts, comedy shows, and a sure-fire way to make sure your eunuch is really a eunuch. There's a bit of the actual events of the evening of the Last Supper (if they wanted to be in the painting, they all had to sit on the same side of the table -- and hold still). Skip ahead 1,500 years to the Spanish Inquisition, which was actually a very musically inspired period. The inquisitions were lead by the Great Torquemada. The swimming nuns were also quite lovely. During the French Revolution, we learned that Paris was filled with misery, poverty and despair -- and people selling apple cores and dead rats. On the other hand, the king playing chess with life-size pieces is good stuff, as is the skeet shooting with peasants. As the peasants began the revolt and were going to behead the fake King Louie, the miracle -- the horse from Rome -- rode up and saved them. We then get a preview into Part II. Moving film reel
