Miklos Jancsó is perhaps the most well-known hungarian director outside of Hungary. "A Zsarnok Szive..." is the second and last collaboration between the director and the very beautiful but underused english actress Teresa Ann Savoy (whose most "famous" role in cinema was that of Drusilla in the controversial "Caligula"). In their first collaboration, Savoy was wasted in the role of a depraved hermaphrodite in the bizarre "Vizi Private, Pubbliche Virtú" (1975).
In this second collaboration, also co-wrote by Giovanna Gagliardo, Teresa plays a queen in a medieval court, who spends most of her time in a kind of trance. Fans of the actress, like me, will be disappointed to find that, despite appearing first on the cast credits, she hasn't much screen time, but when she appears, It is very worthwhile, because her beauty is incomparable.
The plot of the film seems to be confusing, especially because I watched it in hungarian, with french subtitles. Hungarian, I don't understand anything, and french, I understand very little.
However, if you, like me, are in love with the beauty of Teresa Ann Savoy, give this film a try. She is wonderful!
