    Has anyone seen the Fellini movie Satyricon?  I have some questions about
it, like, what play did it originally come from, can it still be found, and
was it anything like the movie?  Also, the English version I saw didn't
translate nearly enough, and I got the sense there were many languages in the
movie.  Like there's one part where there's some slave speaking German!
What's up with that?!  Were there speakers of modern German (or, at least,
German intelligible to my not-yet-fluent girlfriend?) in the Southern
Mediterranean around whatever time period that movie took place?
