Exceedingly well done.
Superbly accurate since they only build the story from known facts.

Very intimate and tasteful; very few documentaries and exhibitions treat the death and the casts scenes with such tact, and even beauty.

Very well narrated.

The DVD includes another superbly made documentary about the coliseum; equal quality and departing only from facts.

At the end, you can check these facts in the additional material.

What a beauty!

I had just gotten back from Pompeii when I borrowed this.

It's a well done and believeable reconstruction of how people likely would have reacted during the eruption and a harrowing description of how the people of Pompeii and Herculaneum met their deaths.

The additional documentary on gladiators was also very interesting.
