Review

A film about the Roman town that was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. If you visited the British Museum’s Pompeii exhibition in 2013, you’ll have seen some gorgeous garden frescoes. Plants and green spaces were vital to Roman ideas of happiness, and the remains at Pompeii bear witness to this love, in both small courtyards and major estates.

Summary
