Pompeii is a short film/music video about a man driven to the thought of suicide, upon finding that his girlfriend has left him, and the transformation of thought that can take place in a single moment - if you close your eyes.
Epic drama of forbidden love in Pompeii at the city's height of glory, up to the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. We follow nobles, slaves, gladiators and the secret gatherings of early Christians. Mostly in English.

By far this was the best documentary that l ever saw, Pompeii always invoked my attention since my school days, the unsurprised BBC made a masterpiece blending dramatization with scenes shot at Pompeii rediscovered, each single building on every corner were introduced on a smart narrative, all this was supplied by an priceless gift from the eyewitness called Plinius the younger who wrote all happenings on that day in a book on smallest details, which nobody took it seriously due the newest and weird info on unprecedented scale over the facts, also the Vesuvius and their pumice stone that buried the city, miraculously preserves all remaining buildings, paintings, graffiti art, which allowed to archeologists a best understanding over the Roman Empire, due all others surviving cities already change the whole ancient complex, extremely and highly recommended for those who really want to learn more over the most powerful empire on Earth ever had !!
