accurate or not, this film is hot!
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jeremy Northam is unbelievably BELIEVABLE in this film (as usual). Truly an under-used actor considering his remarkable ability to "become" his character. (Granted, he tends to play similar characters over again, but why stop when you're on a roll--or role?) I've read much about the film's historical inaccuracies, and while that may be, people still also rent "Immortal Beloved" which is similarly inaccurate but a well-made film nonetheless. Northam is on the same pedestal occupied in my mind by Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. They are incredibly REAL in their portrayals--you'd believe anything they tell you regardless of how bizarre because they come across as genuine. Aside from one corny sequence in this film (a recollection that includes a flaming piano--no kidding, it's terribly done), the film is engaging and well-shot. (For real Northam lovers, there's also some ultra-high-quality butt...and then some...footage. He's a sex God.) Whoof! Apart from that, still a well-made, enjoyable film. (But especially BECAUSE of that.)
