Mille viae ducunt homines per saecula Romam

Tuesday, 29 October, 2013

Beginning on 8 November and offering the Marc’Aurelio Award for best entry, The Rome Film Festival presents some intriguing titles: Marc Turtletaub’s star-filled directorial debut Gods Behaving Badly — a tale of Greek gods living in present-day New York; Her by Spike Jonze, Seventh Code from Japan’s Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Blue Sky Bones from China’s Jian Cui, Jean-Marc Vallee’s Dallas Buyers Club and Out of the Furnace by Scott Cooper.

The Latin saying, Mille viae ducunt homines per saecula Romam (“A thousand roads lead men forever to Rome”) became the proverb: “All roads lead to Rome.” In this clip, Tom Mckie reveals the eternal beauty of the city once known universally as caput mundi.
