Bryan W. Haven's profile of the founding father of communist China is dramatized by a group of actors led by John Ringham, who imbues the recitation of Haven's prose with a tony aplomb. Mao's biographical progression is accompanied by smart soundtrack choices that set the scene, such as the pastoral approximation of traditional Chinese music when recounting his early days as a farmer's son, and the grander orchestrations that accompany his rise to power. Steve Hodson gives a thrilling and nuanced performance as Mao that captures the dynamism and charisma that enabled this anti-imperialist revolutionary to unite an entire nation.
The part of Mao Tse-Tung is played by Steve Hodson, with other parts played by Peter Penry-Jones and Stephen Thorne.
