Scene 35

Scene 35

  • We're inside Maximus' cell or quarters. By firelight, he opens the bag Cicero gave him.
  • It contains the small statues (figurines of his family). He prays.
  • Juba is all of a sudden behind him. He asks if Maximus' family can hear him in the afterlife.
  • He asks Maximus what he says to them.
  • He tells his son he'll see him soon, and to keep his heels down while riding his horse.
  • To his wife? "That is not your business," he says to Juba smiling. Juba also chuckles.
