Great movie! and Engaging movie w/a terrific plot and action!
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film reminded me of the quality of Merchant Ivory films. Beautiful costumes, locations and richly drawn characters. The governor,Brian Blessed, was a delight. I loved every scene with him. The cast was truly amazing. The quality of the actors in this film is staggering. The court jester, accomplished the feat of making me laugh during a serious film. Additionally Christopher Lambert, really delivered, much to my surprise. My opinion of him has definitely. I'm disappointed this was straight to video. I can only imagine how striking this film would be in a movie theater! The film never dragged, clearly well directed. I look forward to future projects from Adrian Rudomin, clearly a director to watch!
