great film, although the life Of Brian popped into my head a couple of times lol. Rachel Weisz was first class as usual 8/10

This is a magnificent historical drama. Everyone should see it. This movie took historical figures and brought them to life, you really see the person, not just the name and the date. Normally I split up movies into intervals, but this one kept me glued to the screen. There are things I will never again take for granted. It's such a shame this movie is not more well known. Such a shame films about teenagers doing stupid things (30 minutes or less, kick ass) are seen by masses while eye openers like this one remain in obscurity until people accidentally find it.

excellent movie!! I really enjoyed seeing the ancients discuss the complexity of our solar system, makes me thankful for the abundance of knowledge we take for granted today.

This movie attempts to depict the Greek philosopher Hypatia in Alexandria, the Hellenistic city founded by Alexander the Great in Egypt. Thus we see a decaying Greco-Egyptian city in the last days of the Roman Empire where the worship of the ancient gods of the Greeks, Romans & Egyptians confronts the new Christian belief. A very interesting movie and quite good in parts.

What an amazing film. To think that once-outlawed Christians, as they grew in numbers and their leaders grew in power, became enemies of knowledge and learning, oppressive and intolerant, and finally self-righteous executioners. Interesting to see how anti-Semitism reaches back in time. One character had an amazing line: "Where would you christians be without Jews? Jesus was a Jew!" Indeed. Although this is a really long film, and at times almost unbearably talky, it is a worthwhile watch. Weisz is fearless and amazing in this role.

A beautiful story about a disappointed love and a woman who devotes her life to science, both are shattered by religious and political plots. Although this film is not flawless, the storyline and the main subject (religious fanaticism) will keep you in suspense. Moreover, the set is amazing.

man I hate those fanatics always destroying our way of life! Too bad this kind of things still exist in our world! What sadness me the burning of the library these people hate knowledge! Alexandria was a great city of human knowledge went up in smokes! Hypatia is the real martyr!

LOVED this movie so much, I had to go buy the dvd to check out the special features... was not disappointed. Thanks for posting this and turning me onto a new genre :) 5/5

Watchable. Good set design and costumes. Sound performances from Rachel Weisz and Oscar Isaac (Orestes). Liberties taken with the historical record, of course, but then the director/screenwriter do seem to have a polemical axe to grind; it's doubtful that Hypatia would have identified herself as an atheist (being a Neoplatonist in all probability), not that the distinction would have mattered to the bloody-minded religious zealots who butchered her. Incidentally, the mercy killing of Hypatia at the hands of her former slave was for dramatic effect alone; contemporary accounts record that she was set upon by a Christian mob and hacked to pieces with shards of broken pottery.

a very interesting movie, and it makes me so thankful that times have changed, that we no longer believe in such cruelty, well, I should say most of the world no longer believes in such cruelty. RW was very good in her roll, it was great seeing her in the role of an ancient philosopher / teacher.
