Artificially made
8 August 2004 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

First of all, this movie is extremely boring. Secondly, it is hilariously absurd, lacks any brim of realism and is extremely poorly acted. Barbariously simplifying the life and the trial of Giordano Bruno, it practically says nothing at all about the personality and the ideas of this important scientist and philosopher. All that it offers are some garments supposedly (and most surely) belonging to that age and some stupid sentences uttered by all characters (of course, mainly by Giordano Bruno), suffocated by clichés and "philosophy" that one could hear daily in all sort of circumstances, all of them worse than mediocre. One of the worst movies I've ever seen (watching it three or four times a year would be more than incomprehensible)
