Renaissance Italy, an era of colours, riches and a pulsing core of European culture. But beauty and artistic revolution is only one face of this coin. Renaissance was also the result of a complex web of politic intrigues and many violent wars.
And in this painting of passionate aesthetics and desires for power, the Borgia family rote its own history, the way they knew better… through charms, wits, manipulation and blood.
This historical TV show, even though romanticizing the era, follows in depth the rise to power of one of the most famous and feared families in the history.
From the beginning we are brought through the sacred corridors of the Vatican where the late pope has passed, giving room to disputes and bribery among the cardinals to take his place. And Rodrigo Borgia (played by acclaimed actor Jeremy Irons) is the best at this ruthless game. Thus, he becomes Pope Alexander VI. From here on, with the aid of his family he will attempt to increase his power over the entire Europe.
But his family is filled with rotten apples. Either for lust of power or desires of the heart, the Borgias may fall the same way that they have ascended… by their own hands. With an exceptional cast alongside Jeremy Irons – François Arnaud as Cesare Borgia and Holliday Grainger as Lucrezia Borgia, this enactment of such an emblematic family in the European history is a delight to watch.
