Actor Ralph Fiennes has made his directorial debut with an adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Coriolanus transposed to a contemporary setting.

The play was set in 5th Century BC but in the film the action takes place in a modern war-torn Balkan-style setting.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
