Dionysus (Pierre Brice) is confronted by Pentheus (Alberto Lupo) in THE BACCHANTES
The lighting in this shot is perfect. I didn't retouch the image. The writing during this entire scene is excellent.
It's odd how Dionysus has been portrayed in movies and popular culture. I already posted about this (link) but I think it's due for an update. And why was Dionysus such an important god in Greek mythology?
Film directed by Giorgio Ferroni who also directed the excellent THE TROJAN HORSE with Steve Reeves amongst other great PEPLUM films. I'll write a review of this film soon.
I'm off tomorrow (it's my birthday) so back on Thursday!
