This film seems to have been completely underrated. It is clearly a passionate filmmaker's work. A beautiful filled with the adventures of a man how is persecuted by the Church. The man ends up a executioner (executioners were excommunicated even though it was to carry official death sentences, but they were given other benefits) that is loathed and feared.
The film is beautiful, and it appears very researched historically. It's a mystery why this gem went so unheard of... It's has it all: adventure, great actors, great sights,... and a remarkable story.
I strongly recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately, I saw the film in France and it doesn't seem to be widely available.
