Socrate (Socrates)
This is one of several biographical films by the famed Italian neorealist director Roberto Rossellini, one of whose better-known films is Stromboli. The script is based on Platonic dialogues and the few-known historical facts about the philosopher Socrates. Socrates was a key figure in the history of Western thought, and his method of inquiry sets the tone for serious philosophical inquiry down to the present day. This film presents his life in an undramatic, documentary style. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Talky but engrossing made for TV biopic on the doomed ancient Greek orator and philosopher Socrates's last days."
