Did You Know?


In the English-dubbed edition of the movie, Ludovico Sforza's Milan is said to have fallen in 1499 to the French King Louis VII. The reference should be to Louis XII who reigned 1498-1515. Louis VII reigned 1137-1180, the wrong time period. See more »

Everyone should see this, marveles and very memorable !!!
13 January 2015 | by emilklemanSee all my reviews

When I was about 8 years old, I was able to see this 5-part TV-serial in my country with an excellent guide, Czech actor Mr. Eduard Cupák and I can not fortge many details. I felt in love with Leonardo since then.

However, it is so long I saw this serial (still in black and white), plus I was so young, that I wish so much to see it once more again. But I do not know, If there will be any possibility for me. I am shure, I woulddiscover many new lines, pathes and details...

It hanged my wiev in life and I have red much more about Leonardo and about many more inventors and artists since then. I even made a special trip ti Vinci in Italy to see his birthplace and first home... I could see much of what I can see on his Mona Lisa painting...

I would recommend this serial to everybody who likes Leonardo and want to know more about him!
