Fight against the Angel and demons
20 June 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A splendid reflection of Renaissance spirit, subtle recreation of a life - chain of temptations, dreams an expectations, story of signs of glory and souls of freedom.

In fact, adaptation of a book, the film is more than that.

First, for the colors of an artistic universe who may be the space of Buonnarotti or Caravaggio.

Then for the force of images and the discover of every nook in an old picture of chimeras and touches.

At last, the impressive magic interpretation of Wadeck Stankzak. The fight against the Angel and demons and the search of faith essence. Instrument of yourself for be creator of the others vision.
