Quite an awful piece of trash
22 July 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Adjectives will fail you, as you try to classify this load of crap, as you try to get over the sadness of having spent actual lifetime watching this, as you fail to get anything out of it - either artistic or historically relevant.

Nothing. Not one thing.

This is a poorly (seriously poor) filmed 'something' made just to make a fool out of Roman Polanski (something that, among everything you can say about him, he will never be). It's a piece of fundamentalist propaganda that doesn't even try to be smart. It looks like it's done by unloved Sunday-school teachers. One of the guys that was trying to sell this at the Film Market in Cannes refers to Polanski with racist, anti-Semitic remarks. His face trembles in anger as he speaks. "Do you know who's a great, underrated filmmaker?" he asks. "Mel Gibson!" he concludes.
