Based on the life of Italian military leader Giovanni Ludovico de' Medici (1498-1526), nicknamed Giovanni delle Bande Nere ("of the Black Bands"). The Black Bands were the elite companies he created; the name comes from their insignia, originally white and purple but blackened after the death of Pope Leone X. See more »
[in the beggining of the movie]
Who created these horrible weapons? From there, the war and carnage started And the way to a cruel death was open. However, don't blame this miserable. We're the ones who don't know how to use what he gave us. To defend ourself from the wild animals.

It is not an "easy" film. If you are searching for an adventure film, or a "kolossal", you don't find it here. But this is a beautiful movie by the artistic side, you need to watch it with calm and patience, like you have to watch a picture of a famous painter. The plot is carried out like touches of brush, the characters are "painted" over a background of ethereal landscapes, nearly soft. So, why my vote is only a 7/10? This is just because the movie is not easy, perhaps too slow for a "normal" vision. After all when I watch a movie, often, specially when I'm tired at the end of a hard day, I need to relax myself, while this movie needs much attention. I don't think you can watch it without a little of concentration, at least the first time. Like you look at a painting.
