Alexandria, 391 AD: Hypatia teaches astronomy, mathematics and philosophy. Her student Orestes is in love with her, as is Davus, her personal slave. When the Christians of the city, led by Ammonius and Cyril, gain political power, the learning institutions can collapse along with the government of slavery. 20 years ahead: Orestes, prefect of the city, has a troubled peace with the Christians, led by Cyril. A group of newly empowered Christians is now eager to assert their cultural hegemony. First, they see the Jews as their obstacle, then the unbelievers. Hypatia has no interest in belief; She is worried about the movement of the heavenly bodies and "the brotherhood of all". Although her former slave does not see it that way.
Agora is one of my favorite movies directed by Alejandro Amenábar. First of all, I need to say that Agora is not like the other Drama movies made according to the usual scheme. In the comparison to the other new movies, Agora is a true gold. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. Agora was produced in Spain and directed by Alejandro Amenábar.
