Pupi Avati is a very good director, although very little known outside Italy, who made good things with different styles. His forte is the movie about feelings and small tragedies of life, crepuscular stories set in Italian countryside, but he did an excellent job also with some peculiar horror films, with a medieval film called "Magnificat"( that, although full of historical mistakes had some grace and very personal style), films on the jazz era. What a pity he decided to cross his personal level of incompetence trying to produce a big film on the Quest for the Shroud with scarcely believable knights and an inexplicable taste for gore. The film, except some parts, doesn't work at all. It's terribly edited, with huge plot holes, with sequences that are completely meaningless and a ludicrous finale where it takes an entire army a quarter of an hour to slain the 4 heroes. As in a good old film of the past. The problem is the past is past, and this film fails to recreate that flavour. An the one that actually recreates tastes foul.
