  • TERROR of ROME AGAINST the SON of HERCULES (MACISTE, Gladiator of Sparta)

  • That cock is unfriendly.

  • He looked like someone I couldn't stand, but I can't remember who.

  • It's been a long time someone died, that I don't remember anymore.

  • The cock is waiting your decision, Caesar.

  • - How is the fighter, tanned or blond? - Tanned.

  • - Well? - Is blond.

  • Well done, hurray!

  • That fighter is a coward!

  • That cock is silly in leting him flee. Later, cut both, their heads off.

  • Hail Caesar!

  • Caesar is pleased with the winners, however it's not finished yet.

  • Another challenge awaits you.

  • If you win, the reward will be a thousand sesterzi in gold...

  • ... and two acres of good land. You're tired and your opponent is not.

  • But to make this up, you are four against one.

  • And who is this one? None other than Maciste of Sparta.

  • The people are going crazy.

  • If he wins, his popularity will give you trouble, Caesar.

  • I don't think he will survive those four

  • I hope he wins once again.

  • He's strong and loyal and honors your friendship, Caesar.

  • Furthermore, how could a gladiator compete with the glory of Caesar.

  • Olimpia is right. Sifface, you have just said nonsense.

  • - Love blinds, my dear. - And jealousy blinds even more.

  • Hail Caesar, the gladiators salute you.

  • Hail to you, my friend.

  • If you win, I'll wait for you in the palace, to celebrate...

  • ... your nomination, as the first Gladiator of the Empire.

  • As long as there's good food, good wine and beautiful ladies, I won't miss it!

  • I've got a great idea, Sifface. Order them to begin.

  • Great, reminds me of Marte itself, this Spartan.

  • I don't know anything better than eating.

  • And I wish I had the neck of a giraffe, to enjoy the food down the throat.

  • I drink to your long life, Caesar.

  • - When can I see you again? - You do not give up, hey?

  • - You know I want you! - Only Caesar can say " I want".

  • - Then when? I can give you everything. - I know you are rich, Sifface.

  • And powerful, so be alert!

  • I'm not afraid of your threats.

  • You don't protect me, son of Marte, why?

  • - I was afraid not to please you. - Finally, a compliment.

  • Strength and beauty completely, put together.

  • I admit that we are starting well.

  • I wait for you in my house, in Nomentana.

  • - When? - Tonight, after I leave.

  • Your waiting will be short.

  • - Cheers and glory to Caesar. - Cheers and glory to Caesar!

  • Cheers and glory to our Spartan Gladiator...

  • ...invincible in the arena and in war.

  • - Cheers and glory. - Thank you, Caesar.

  • Sifface has not drank. Obviously, he doesn't share my view.

  • It's true. I'm sorry if what goes on my heart is so conspicuous.

  • You've heard. The head of the Praetorians, is not very fond of you.

  • I don't blame him.

  • Power always prevail.

  • I should mention Sifface, that your scheme, to beat Maciste...

  • - ... did not work. - I admire and admit Maciste's courage.

  • But there's one thing that renders him invincible: luck!

  • - It's true, and I ask the gods to keep blessing me, with it.

  • Challenge him Sifface. Who knows, maybe the Godess, will abandon him.

  • - I'm ready Caesar. - And you Maciste?

  • If your words are not an order, I would rather go to sleep.

  • It is. I ate a lot, and I want to have some fun.

  • - How do you want to fight? - As you wish.

  • Have you heard Sifface? Choose the way of fighting.

  • I've chosen already. I don't want to beat the great Gladiator of Rome.

  • Unless we use the same weapons. He knows the tricks of the trade!

  • You talk too much. Choose the weapons as Maciste has decided, already.

  • And let's begin.

  • - I'm ready! - What do you mean?

  • We'll fight blindfolded. This way, we'll have the same chances.

  • Great, very well! By all gods, I've never assisted to such a challenge.

  • Great, let's go. Come on everybody. Let's see.

  • Great blow Sifface, but you need to aim at the target.

  • Watch out Maciste, he can see!

  • - That's what I was expecting. - That's enough, stop!

  • Maciste is brave and Sifface every now and then, stops the game...

  • ... which makes me drowsy. Let's go to sleep.

  • - Why are you chasing her? - It's not your business, go away!

  • Leave her alone!

  • Thank you for saving my life. You are strong and generous.

  • I thank God for putting you on my way.

  • - How can I repay your help? - Don't worry. They would harm you.

  • Yes, but our religion teaches us to love our enemies.

  • - What do you say? - They chased me, because I'm a Cristian

  • They went to my house to capture me, my parents and my brother.

  • Where are they?

  • They are hidding in a small house, where I should meet them.

  • Tell me your name so that I can remember it, on my prayers.

  • - My name is Maciste. - Thank you Maciste. Goodbye.

  • - Can I see you again? - I'm Silvia. I'll be happy to see you.

  • But remember that we Cristians, are considered, enemies of Rome.

  • You said we should love our enemies.

  • What happened? Have you changed your mind?

  • No, Olimpia.

  • - Then, what is it? - Nothing.

  • Don't lie. I am in love, and know everything about it.

  • At a time I was so happy for you to come and now, I'm so willing for you to go.

  • - Something happened? - Yes Olimpia, on my way here.

  • - Is it another woman? - Yes.

  • - More beautiful than me? - No, it is something else.

  • I've seen her only once. She is young and defenceless.

  • Since I've seen her, I don't think about anything else. This never happened before

  • Forgive me.

  • I see, you're in love. Now go, run to her.

  • I don't want to take, even one minute away, from your rejoice.

  • Why are you crying, my Lady?

  • I love him.

  • I know many people that would give their lives, for a kiss, from you.

  • - But I love him! - And he refuses your love.

  • You should treat him like a dog.

  • I'm afraid that if I treat him bad I would never see him again.

  • It's better to be his friend and who knows, maybe one day, he falls for me.

  • - Be welcome, Maciste! - You're waiting for me?

  • I'm happy that you have come. Let's go in.

  • These are my parents and this is my brother Marco.

  • - We owe you eternal gratitude. - Sit down, Maciste

  • Yes,sit here.

  • You're too tall to be standing.

  • - I hope you like our place. - Is it him, who killed a soldier?

  • - We hope that he is alive. - Yes, so that he won't be punished.

  • - But his deed was much appreciated. - You don't speak Maciste, why?

  • - Don't worry about those beasts. - Why are you Cristians?

  • - Because we are fortunate, to find God. - What God?

  • The one and only God

  • The one that gives you the strength to face torture, persecution, death.

  • Yes, because we believe in another life. Those who suffer now, will be rewarded.

  • I hope you don't believe what they say about us...

  • ...that we practice strange rituals by sacrificing children, and arsoning Rome.

  • No, especially now, after what I have just learned.

  • Why don't you defend yourselves? Don't fight, don't organize?

  • We fight and organize.

  • Later, we'll meet our brothers in the via Appia cave.

  • Do you have any weapons? Someone that can lead you?

  • - Yes, our bishop Marcello. - And the weapon, our Preacher.

  • - Preacher? You think he'll protect you from the Praetorians, the arena cruelty?

  • - Our law is called, love. -Let's go. We'd better travel at night.

  • The Praetorians may come, to search. We better, hurry up!

  • - May God protect you Maciste, goodbye. - Goodbye Maciste.

  • I love you. If your law is love, don't reject me.

  • I don't reject you!

  • Wait. I'll come back soon!

  • - I have orders to arrest you? - Why?

  • I'm surprised you don't know. You killed a Praetorian and wounded another.

  • - It was in self defense! - That's not my problem.

  • Caesar ordered your arrest and I personnally, am executing it. Let's go!

  • How could one know that woman was a Cristian, Caesar?

  • The Praetorians were chasing her and attacked me, so I defended myself.

  • That's what you say, Maciste, however the Praetorian version is different.

  • I'm sorry Maciste, but whoever breaks the law of Rome should be punished.

  • - Being a hero, you shouldn't abuse. - I don't want privileges, but justice.

  • And the justice means death.

  • It's true, but an Emperor should be fair and generous.

  • Tonight, you'll face a test of truth in the arena.

  • If you manage to pass this test, you'll be deemed innocent.

  • - I'm ready. - You're so confident, hey?

  • You wouldn't be, if you know what awaits you, in the arena.

  • - Look, he has no weapon. - How is he fighting such a monster?

  • Look at the monster!

  • What a pity, he's finished.

  • Not yet, Caesar.

  • We've got a show, right?

  • He doesn't realize that blow, can kill a man.

  • Hurray!

  • My great Gladiator. It was rough this time.

  • - Yes, due to my opponent. - Come, seat by my side.

  • Ask whatever you want?

  • Tell him, Appio Siculo, what's his reward.

  • You've passed the test of truth, and the gods are with you.

  • You're intitled to a prize, whatever it may be.

  • Whatever you choose, your test was magnificent.

  • Do you want my Anzio village?

  • The most beautiful slave in Rome? A hundred thousand sesterzi in gold?

  • You also, can have the death of one, of your enemies.

  • - Anything Maciste! - Ask and you will have!

  • - The death of someone? - Sure.

  • Since your generosity is huge, I don't want death, but life.

  • - The one of the Cristian woman. - It's a simple wish. Do you love her?

  • No, but I want your benevolence towards a young woman...

  • ... who doesn't deserve to be labelled , an enemy of Rome.

  • - What do you know about her? - Nothing.

  • I agree. The Cristian is yours.

  • - You can make her, your slave. - It's a good idea.

  • - Now go. Don't miss the party tonight. - I will not.

  • I'm hungry!

  • The Lord takes the bread...

  • ... and breaks it.

  • Saying: Here, eat it.

  • This is my body.

  • Then He takes the wine, and says:

  • Here, drink it. This is my blood.

  • Every time you do this, you'll do it, in memory of Me.

  • In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

  • Halt!

  • Quickly, let's go back. It can't be this far!

  • Come around me. If anyone wants to ask any questions, feel free.

  • I know little about your God.

  • But I'm ready to sacrifice everything, for your love.

  • You've already got it!

  • Excuse me? Good heavens! We're as strong as a ship hawser.

  • I have heard about you!

  • - They say you're strong as I. - This is Dalmoto.

  • A lonely, poor Cristian. Enemy of Vitellio, I mean, Caesar the paunchy.

  • - Dalmoto? - Sorry, Caesar the beer belly.

  • - We also call him the same. - Did he really once, ate an intire pig?

  • - Yes, he did. I saw it myself. - My God, then it's really true!

  • It seems that the ground has swallowed him.

  • That way!

  • Be not afraid when your faith weakens. God is with those that believe in Him.

  • Remember the traitor Chilone Chillonide...

  • ...after being responsible for many deaths, repented and became a Cristian.

  • Tigellino, they cut off his tongue, before they burn him alive.

  • And Chilone Chilonide used to kiss the hands, of the murderers.

  • - What made the traitor change his mind - Do not move!

  • Everybody against the wall! Push those there.

  • - Who are you? - I am Marcello, their bishop.

  • Then, you and your people are enemies of Rome, and traitors of the Empire.

  • We are no enemies nor traitors, Centurian...

  • ...but if it is your duty to arrest us, we're ready to follow you.

  • As for you, my orders are to let you free, along with the Cristian woman.

  • - It's him who betrayed us. - He brought them here!

  • It's not true!

  • Listen Silvia, I only asked Caesar to spare your life, so we could be together

  • Caesar can dispose of my life, as he wishes, but not of my will.

  • - What do you say Silvia? Wait! - Goodbye.

  • Hurry! Let's go. Move!

  • Quickly.

  • - Hail Caesar! - All right, hail to all!

  • - The cook got sick. - That's terrible!

  • - Have someone cut off his head, Caesar. - Yes, cut off their heads.

  • - I don't see Maciste! Where is he? - There!

  • - There he is. - Hi Caesar! May the Gods be with you.

  • I'm happy to see you alive.

  • I would like to know if it's true, what happened in the cave?

  • - It's true Caesar. - I'm sorry. I had faith in your choices

  • Well, you can choose another woman, from among my courtesans.

  • I thank you Caesar, but I don't want to take advantage, of your kindness.

  • You're disappointed, right?

  • No, but I admit that I became blinded by that Cristian.

  • And what made you change your mind?

  • What I have seen and heard. They love an absurd God.

  • They practice some rituals and think the world will be theirs, in another live.

  • When I think that Cristian almost convinced me that when one is slapped...

  • ...one should turn the other cheek. By Jupiter, I don't want to see her again.

  • You'll see her, in fact, and sooner than you think.
