Storyline

Isabel and Clara are growing up in a time of terror. It is 1492, and Spain has decreed that all Jews must either convert to Catholicism, go into exile or face trial and execution. Although forcibly baptized, the sisters are chased through Christendom until they arrive in Venice. It is in this great maritime empire, where opulence rhymes with tolerance, that Isabel organizes secret passages for refugees fleeing the Inquisition while Clara falls in love with a Venetian noble, Paolo Zane. Isabel intends for her family to go to Istanbul, the only place where Jews can live freely, but Clara is reluctant to leave. She challenges Isabel's authority and is prepared to break her family ties and sacrifice her faith for love. Caught in this battle of wills is Clara's daughter, Victoria, who finds she is about to be married into the same faith that murdered her father. Written by Anonymous

A beautiful film
2 December 2006 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie on TV in Greece.( Dec 06) As I had never heard of it before it was a real surprise. Great costumes, sets and color . The story kept moving along and you had to pay attention. I felt at the end that I wanted more . What happened next ? Is there a sequel ? Was it a series ? The scenes in Venice were amazing in their recreation of the period. Most of these actors I have never heard of and I gather that it is a mainly European cast. The credits ran so fast ( on my TV) that I couldn't catch what nationality the co production was . Czecoslovakian ? The historical aspects were very interesting and there were echos of Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice" in the way the Venictian's applied their trading laws and laws of contract. Very interesting. And yes beautifully filmed.
