I love the work of Amenabar since "Tesis" of 1996 and I liked a lot this movie, although I think after I was reading a lot about it, and waiting for a long time to see Agora and the result was not the master piece that I expected. This is n...ot a good example of rigorous historical investigation: lots of details about Hypatia of Alexandria are almost invented, and the attempt to show the Christians as a kind of Talibans are pretty forced, but anyway the film is great in a lot of ways. The set to recreate the old Alexandria is amazing, the gorgeous Rachel Weisz looks and works as awesome as usual, and the music is good. I hope next Amenabar's movie is better, but this is very recommendable as a good example of the new Spanish cinema.
My score: 8 (out of 10)
