12 July 2014 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

If you saw other Italian "historical" movies from this period then you know what to expect:

-Terrible acting,

-Beautiful girls,

-Awful dialogue, and

-Brain-insulting twists in the story.

I guess all the positive things (apart from the ladies :)) about this movie are what is taken from the book, so I guess it would be better to look for another version.

Just to make one thing clear: I am a fan of classic movies, and this being old is by no means the reason for disliking it. It is simply bad.
