Max von Sydow,
All Sapkowski fans in Poland waited loong time to see what was suppose to be "an epic tale". We've had it. Right there... I should say - as my friend had/ "I've seen a movie. Was called Wiedzmin. Period. End".
Great story from one of the best contemporary fantasy writers was killed by script writter, director and most of all - by costume designer. Who would think that Elves would wear rags and look like pueblo dwellers from seventieth century? Disaster - that's a word. Pathetic was trying to compare this pulp to LOTR - as producers of film tried to. Not a single word more. Anyone! Avoid it - read the books for Pete's sake. It is available in polish, german and few more languages. It was not, as far as I know, translated to English.
