The Agony and the Ecstasy
The Gripping Story of Michelangelo's Pain and Triumph.Charlton Heston and Rex Harrison portray two of the Renaissance's most colorful figures in this historical drama based on Irving Stone's best-seller. When Pope Julius II (Harrison) commissions Michelangelo (Heston) to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the artist initially refuses. Virtually forced to do the job by Julius, Michelangelo later destroys his own work and flees Rome. Nominated for an Oscar for Cinematography and named one of the year's best films by the National Board of Review, The Agony and the Ecstasy is a fascinating dramatization of the battle of wills behind one of the world's artistic masterpieces.

Must say Rex Harrison did one fantastic job with his character role of Pope Julius in this movie. Now I understand why it's called the Agony and the Ecstasy, although the one and only reference to this title in the movie, seemed out of context, it does truly describe what Michael Angelo went through and his persistence was nothing less than exemplary. Truly an undertaking like none other,
