Superb cast and scenery...

Superb cast and worth watching just for the Italian scenery.
Historical drama that is a good as the 1986 film of the same name.
John Tuttoro really conveys someone who has spiritual presence.
Highly recommended.

The Google Translate Version
Badly acted, badly written, badly filmed. Has all the atmosphere of a Legoland version of the Middle Ages shot with iphone filters. It manages to capture nothing of the original novel's darkness; and though boasting of its fealty to the novel manages to shoehorn a clumsy Hunger Games style feminist subplot that is as painful as it is pointless. Turturro walks around like a Mel Brooks character with a mouthful of pebbles; Michael Emerson seems to think he's in an acting workshop where you just make it up as you go along as hammily as possible; Damian Hardung seems utterly lost (until he has to take his habit off yet again); and Rupert Everett gives one of the most awful, off-key performances that I have ever seen. A terrible waste.
