16 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

recreate Medieval atmosphere. use a great Romanian cast. present heart of a time as a large play in which faith, fear and fortune are parts of a fragile ladder. portrait of a genius. reflection about life. adventures of a spirit. hymn to profound freedom. like many films by Sergiu Nicolaescu, Villon is a fresco. exercise of revival for a period with careful preoccupation for details. but it is more. it is a labyrinth. the viewer is character of a trip in essence of things and not fight scenes, not individual events are real relevant but flavor of old Vanitas vanitatum. it is a beautiful film. for noble intentions, for respect of measure, for wonderful performance and subtle game of nuances. only problem - Florent Pagny who, in few sequences, is lost in a machine system to fast for him.
